This is the hub page for all information about the use of Git by KDE.

KDE i Git

This section provides details on using the KDE Git infrastructure. This is intended for use by KDE developers to find out how KDE uses Git and how to set up Git for use with KDE.

The KDE Git System Administrators Manual is a useful resource for more details on the technical implementation of the KDE Git infrastructure.

For more information on how the KDE Git Repositories are organized, please see the Sources page or the KDE Git Projects page.

Please note that some KDE modules are still using SVN, for more details read the Using Subversion with KDE page.

Konfiguracja KDE Git

How to configure Git for use with the KDE infrastructure.

Please see the Git Configuration page.

KDE Git Policies

KDE policies on Git. More generic development policies go elsewhere.

No formal workflow policy currently exists, but a number of draft proposals have been made:


  • The new Commit Policy is being reviewed, applied to both SVN and Git.
  • GitHub Mirror has been created and policy is in development (Sep 2015).

KDE Git Recipes

Please see the Git Recipes page.

Existing Pages For Review

Existing KDE pages about Git, SVN, and/or buildinga KDE that need to be revised. When revising pages try to split the generic development and revision control policies separate from Git specific stuff. Do not refer to "the KDE Git Repository" but instead the "KDE Code Repository". Lots of small simple pages that are less daunting to newbies and can be linked to from multiple locations are preferred to massive walls of text.




There are also numerous other pages referring to "the KDE SVN/subversion repositories" which should be replaced with the generic "KDE code repositories".

There are also numerous translated pages which will need to be updated once the original pages are completed.
