A quick intro for potential plasma contributors (kdebase and maybe extragear, not playground or other locations)

  • Plasma uses kdelibs coding style. there's a file in svn that makes vim follow this automatically: kde-devel.vim
  • nontrivial patches should be reviewed before committing. depending on the content of the patch, this could be as simple as getting someone on irc to do a quick sanity-check, or it could turn into a full discussion about the pros and cons of various ways of implementing something. :) we have a new tool to help with this: review board
  • mailing list is panel-devel subcribe archives
  • of course, the rest of techbase has lots of important information about contributing to kde in general; you've read that stuff, right?
