== 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]]
* [[SIGs/KDE/Planning]]


For Fedora 8 and further, it will also be central in integrating KDE 4:
=== Weekly meetings ===
* [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)
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.
* [[SIGs/KDE/Update policy]]
 
=== Communication channels ===
 
We also have [https://matrix.to/#/#kde:fedoraproject.org Matrix] and libera.chat IRC ({{fpchat|#fedora-kde}}) rooms, both of which are bridged to each other.

Besides the [[SIGs/KDE/Meetings| KDE SIG meetings]]  there is also existing a freenode channel for developers and users of KDE in Fedora: {{fpchat|#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.

<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 %{_target_platform}
pushd %{_target_platform}
%{cmake_kde4} ..
popd
 
make %{?_smp_mflags} -C %{_target_platform}
 
%install
make install/fast DESTDIR=%{buildroot} -C %{_target_platform}
</pre>
 
* In the <code>%files</code> you can use at least the following macros:
<pre>
%{_kde4_appsdir}
%{_kde4_bindir}
%{_kde4_configdir}
%{_kde4_datadir}
%{_kde4_docdir}
%{_kde4_iconsdir}
%{_kde4_includedir}
%{_kde4_libdir}
</pre>

* [[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.

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.
