Danny's back! Now folks, he has a system in place to allow others to help make the digest - so volunteer! :)

I didn't understand the return was so near!

Thanks to danny and his awesome tool "Enzyme" even developers with very little time at hands are able to help a bit - although I guess he still does the main work: turning many commit-messages (even if pre-filtered) into a readable text must be a bit like porting assembler code to c++. Manually!
So: great work, Danny!

That's http://enzyme-project.org/ in the general case ;)

A warm "welcome back" for Danny and the Digest - along with the Digesteers, too :)

The KDE Commit-Digest was one of the things that initially drew me to KDE. Every week, I would look forward to read about all cool new features and look at pretty screenshots.

Thanks Danny Allen and all contributors for reviving the Commit-Digest, you rock!

Wow the digest is back, this is great news, you have really made my day

Yay, fantastic work Danny, it's great to see the digest back again. OK peeps, if you enjoy reading it, you know enough to help compile it. The more people who step up to help the less work it will be!

Was there any conclusion reached about any tags the devs can add to the commits to help you out?

By odysseus at Mon, 2010/10/18 - 8:30pm

Something i'm thinking of adding very shortly.

What would the format of the tag be though?
Others are like BUG:888 or SVN_SILENT...

I guess DIGEST could work, just need to make sure tags are specific enough to be extracted, and not caught in sentences like "We digested the information..."

What about hosting enzyme in the new KDE git repo?

By Jason at Tue, 2010/10/19 - 1:26am

It's something i'll think about (it would certainly make many things much easier, like mailing lists and using the KDE bug tracker), although I see Enzyme as being project-independent where many projects could use the platform as the basis of their own publications, so I thought it makes more sense to do all the project management myself and outside the KDE development sphere.

KDE software has traditionally been strongest in Europe and South America. With the growth of events such as Camp KDE and many key contributors calling North America home, KDE is increasing its presence in this region.keylogger
