== Fedora KDE Spin ==
== Communication ==
The Fedora KDE SIG has played an integral role in creating the Fedora 7 KDE-Live spin and is continuing this work for Fedora 8 and beyond:
* [[Releases/FeatureFedoraKDE]]
* [[SIGs/KDE/LiveCD| Fedora-KDE-Live]]
For Fedora 8 and further, it will also be central in integrating KDE 4:
* [http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f8/en_US/sn-Devel.html#sn-kde4-dev KDE 4 Development Platform]  (Fedora 7 updates and Fedora 8)
* [[Releases/FeatureKDE4]]  (Fedora 9 and beyond, full KDE 4 desktop workspace)


Fedora 10 and further:
=== Weekly meetings ===
* [[SIGs/KDE/Branding|Fedora KDE branding]] (Plasma, desktop, etc.)
* [[Features/KDE42]] (Fedora 11)


== References ==
The KDE SIG conducts meetings on Mondays at 1800 UTC, with a meeting duration of 1 hour. These take place [https://meet.kde.org/b/ale-swq-39j here] on KDE's [https://bigbluebutton.org/ BigBlueButton] instance. In here, we will discuss issues and improvements related the KDE software stack on Fedora, especially those that are filed on our [https://pagure.io/fedora-kde/SIG/issues issue tracker]. We mostly communicate using voice chat, and some of us will share camera feeds. There is also text chat if you prefer that. [https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar/kde-sig/ Here] is the meeting calendar.

== Joining the SIG ==
== Historical ==
 
Joining the KDE SIG is as simple as being part of Fedora and having a love for KDE.  Once you are a contributor to Fedora, you can join the SIG by adding your name above and communicating with the rest of the team in the usual [[Communicate|  Fedora channels]] .
 
=== How you can help ===
 
If you have no idea how to help us with providing a good and qualitative excellent release of KDE in Fedora here are some proposals where we need help:
* '''Packagers:''' There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged for Fedora. [[Packaging/Guidelines| Package it]]  to improve the user experience.
* '''Reviewers:''' Only a few persons are doing the kde-related reviews. [[Packaging/ReviewGuidelines| Help us reviewing]]  so that more packages could be included.
* '''Testers:''' If you love KDE use the development version or the updates-testing repository and report bugs, bugs, bugs, request enhancements or features. We need your feedback to improve KDE.
* '''Bugs:''' Become a [[BugZappers| BugZapper]]  and help us with kde-related bugs.
* '''Documentation writers:''' The documentation (esp. the [[Docs/DesktopUserGuide| DesktopUserGuide]] ) is GNOME-centered. Help us to provide an equivalent for KDE.
* '''Release Notes:''' The few people that are working on the new KDE-Spin are quite busy with development issues. If you want to help us in [[DocsProject/ReleaseNotes/Process| writing the release notes]]  for the next version of Fedora we would give you all the info you need.
* '''Wiki:''' Maintain http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/KDE and keep it updated with end user information.
* '''Artists:''' To provide a matching theme for [[Artwork/NodokaTheme| nodoka-theme]]  (GTK2 and also metacity)

=== Meetings ===
 
There will be informal [[SIGs/KDE/Meetings| KDE SIG meetings]]  in the [[Fedora meeting channel | #fedora-meeting channel]]  every

=== IRC Channel ===
 
Besides the [[SIGs/KDE/Meetings| KDE SIG meetings]]  there is also existing a freenode channel for developers and users of KDE in Fedora: [[Communicate| #fedora-kde]]
 
== Programming Tasks ==
Since Fedora strives to release software on the leading edge we often have to do programming work upstream in order to get things to work together.  This can range from diagnosing and fixing bugs that upstream is not yet aware of to porting applications to a brand new framework.  Please visit the [[KDE_Programming_Wishlist| Programming Wishlist]] for a list of items that need programmer attention.

=== Best Practices ===
 
* For proper Requires:, consider using before the <code>%description</code> section this code:
<code>%{?_kde4_macros_api:Requires: kde4-macros(api) = %{_kde4_macros_api} }</code>
 
* Here are some example <code>%build</code> and <code>%install</code> sections:
<pre>
%build
mkdir -p %{_target_platform}
pushd %{_target_platform}
%{cmake_kde4} ..
popd
 
make %{?_smp_mflags} -C %{_target_platform} VERBOSE=1
 
%install
rm -rf %{buildroot}
mkdir %{buildroot}
make install DESTDIR=%{buildroot} -C %{_target_platform}
</pre>


* In the <code>%files</code> you can use at leas the following macros:
* [[SIGs/KDE/Historical|Historical SIG pages]]: Those pages are outdated (see the top of this page for up to date content). They are kept here for reference.
<pre>
%{_kde4_appsdir}
%{_kde4_bindir}
%{_kde4_configdir}
%{_kde4_datadir}
%{_kde4_docdir}
%{_kde4_iconsdir}
%{_kde4_includedir}
%{_kde4_libdir}
</pre>

Fedora KDE Special Interest Group

Mission

The KDE SIG (Special Interest Group) is a group of Fedora contributors that maintain KDE packages in Fedora, as well as the KDE Spin and Fedora Kinoite. Their mission is to provide high-quality, usable KDE software packages to Fedora users and developers, and to support one another in maintaining those packages.

Communication

Weekly meetings

The KDE SIG conducts meetings on Mondays at 1800 UTC, with a meeting duration of 1 hour. These take place here on KDE's BigBlueButton instance. In here, we will discuss issues and improvements related the KDE software stack on Fedora, especially those that are filed on our issue tracker. We mostly communicate using voice chat, and some of us will share camera feeds. There is also text chat if you prefer that. Here is the meeting calendar.

Communication channels

We also have Matrix and libera.chat IRC (#fedora-kde[?]) rooms, both of which are bridged to each other.

Issue and progress tracking

For more formal proposals, bug reports, suggestions, etc, we have a Pagure issue tracker.

How you can help

If you have no idea how to help us, here are some areas we always need help with:

  • Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged for Fedora. If you want to see it in Fedora, here are Fedora's packaging guidelines.
  • Reviewers: Only a few people are doing kde-related reviews. Help us review so that more packages can be included.
  • Testing/QA: If you want to help test KDE software, use the updates-testing repository, and report bugs here. You might also like to get acquainted with Fedora's QA process.
  • Wiki: Maintain KDE-related wiki pages and keep the info up-to-date. Here is a good place to start.

More info

Joining the SIG

Joining the KDE SIG is as simple as being part of Fedora and having a love for KDE. Once you are a contributor to Fedora, you can join the SIG by adding your name below and communicating with the rest of the team in the usual Fedora channels.

Historical

  • Historical SIG pages: Those pages are outdated (see the top of this page for up to date content). They are kept here for reference.
