Kernel Cousin KDE Issue #1 is Out!

Aaron J. Seigo has started a KDE version of the Kernel Cousin series at Kernel Traffic. Given the number of Cousins already active, he asked, "Why not for KDE?". The result is one of the first projects to flow from the recently-announced kde-promo mailing list. Read the first edition of KC KDE for all of 11 topics covering the new KDE printing system, Caldera's work on Samba and kio_smb, AA, KWrite, KDE on HPUX and Solaris, and more. Our congratulations and thanks go to Aaron for this initiative that will greatly benefit the KDE community! For more details and to learn how to get involved, read below.

Kernel Traffic, headed by Zack Brown, has been publishing weekly summaries of the Linux kernel mailing list for over two years. The program has been expanded over time with "cousin" publications, covering weekly development summaries for Debian, Gimp, GNU Hurd, Samba and Wine. These volunteer efforts have helped promote and
keep the developments of these projects in the public eye.

The latest Kernel Cousin, KC KDE, published its inaugural issue today, covering the discussions and events in the KDE mailing lists between February 25 and March 6. A new issue will be published each week and
older issues will be archived on the KC KDE page. If you would like to help or have suggestions for making KC KDE better, please email Aaron Seigo, the current editor. Enjoy!.


Kudos to Aaron and Zack! We haven't had such good coverage of the KDE lists since the days of the "other" KDN.

I greatly enjoyed this first edition and I'm really looking forward to future editions.


PS Sorry for getting the news up on the dot so late -- almost 9 hours after it was first submitted. Our email notification is busted. :(

The other kernel cousins have email lists that announce new issues via email and others that deliver the entire issue via email.

Hopefully in the next week or two Zack will be able to set up similar lists for KC KDE.
