Local Groups BoF at aKademy 2006

This year at aKademy 2006 there will be a BoF section to discuss KDE local groups. The issue will be how to spread KDE in your own country, helping each other and finding more to help in future. The starting point of the BoF will be the KDE Italia experience and then the experiences of all the groups will be put together to make sure we spread KDE all around the world. We will look at the available resources including the use of KDE regional websites.

KDE Thanks Rob Levin

We knew him as lilo. He was the founder of the Freenode IRC network, a place where many open source projects established a real-time meeting ground. Freenode is where we work, play, and share. It is where many a small idea has grown into a large project. It is where we are all enriched by the experience and diversity of a group of people from many cultures who all have in common a love of open source.

First Konqueror Bug Triage Day

Last Wednesday was Konqueror Bug Day. The aim was to either confirm or close as many unconfirmed Konqueror bugs as possible, known as bug triage. About 150 bugs were dealt with. Collaboration happened on IRC (#konq-bugs), and on the wiki page. #kde-bugs on irc.freenode.net is already proving fertile ground for planning similar events in near future.
