Could you please implement the feature to the Digest that one could click on git diff URLs? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you :)

Agreed. We have been looking in to this -- do you or anyone else know of a way to access git diffs online?


You can find some KDE websites on topic git here:

From this list maybe you need commits.kde.org or gitweb.kde.org.

An impressive set of changes across the board. In particular, the rate of progress on Calligra these days is exciting to see.

To create a new Digest we need to review quite a number of commits each week--KDE developers are very busy these days! In order to improve the Digest, produce it in time and make our readers happy (our ultimate goal!) we would appreciate some helping hands...

It is easy (you do not have to be a programmer) and it is fun!

Volunteer here and join our mailing list.

It is not time consuming--an hour per week already makes a big difference.

I agree, I haven't tried Calligra yet, but every Digest mentions some progress, so that's great. It's good to see competition in the office space, as LibreOffice seems to be quite active as well and cleaning up the OpenOffice.org code base.

Thanks for the Digests, by the way, it's good to see them regularly now.
