Todos concordamos que existem muitas aplicações para o KDE que precisam ser escritas. Mas também há muitas aplicações existentes no KDE que necessitam sua ajuda.
Para ver as áreas que precisam ajuda, veja esta página.
Antes de começar uma nova aplicação, é uma boa idéia verificar o KDE-Apps.org em busca de projetos existentes e também perguntar na lista de emails kde-devel se alguém já está trabalhando em algo similar.
KOffice e KDevelop, apesar de muito aclamados, possuem muito poucos desenvolvedores, então você pode verificar lá. Não é necessário ser um dos principais desevolvedores do KDE para ajudar. O KDE é muito modular, sendo possível melhorar uma área sem conhecer como o sistema completo funciona.
Você também pode perguntar na lista kde-devel por alguém precisando ajuda com algum aplicativo. Utilize a última versão do KDE e repare nas coisas necessárias. Um gerador de temas? Um editor de schema para o Konsole? Melhorar um jogo? Sempre há um pequeno recurso faltando. Vá e implemente-o!
Você é familiar ou sente-se atraído por alguma área específica? Verifique se alguma aplicação relacionada pode ser melhorada. Ou escreva uma nova. O KDE precisa de mais aplicações orientadas a não-geeks.
Existem inúmeras tarefas que não exigem habilidades em programação. Escreva reviews de aplicativos para promover o KDE (veja a lista kde-promo), ajude o time de documentação (veja i18n.kde.org/doc), ajude os tradutores (veja i18n.kde.org), ajude a filtrar os bugs reportados (veja bugs.kde.org).
The Konqi for some people SDK is at ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/devel/konqi_sdk.tar.bz2
It was posted to artist.kde.org before that site ceased to be updated.

You need to know C++. Read the Qt tutorials and browse the Qt docs to get familiar with what's available with Qt. Then read the KDE tutorials and browse architecture and documentation. You can also read the KDE Book, it can not harm. But you don't have to be familiar with the whole KDE architecture to become a kde developer. Using kde's technologies is quite easy, so concentrate on what you really need, you can learn the other bits later on. KDE TechBase and doc.qt.nokia.com (also in your $QTDIR/doc/html) are invaluable resources, take advantage of them. Then, browse the source, look for the examples directories, see how the other did code their applications. Reading and writing code is the best way to learn.
See the "Building and Running KDE Software From Source" section on the Getting_Started page.

And to make svn diff ignore whitespace, and print function names:
[helpers] diff-cmd = /usr/local/bin/_svndiff
with the following in /usr/local/bin/_svndiff:
#!/bin/sh exec /usr/bin/diff -b -u -p "$@"
Don't forget to make /usr/local/bin/_svndiff executable.
There are three requirements:

As core developer Waldo Bastian explains in a copyrighted mail:
Being part of KDE means that you have to work together with others. Such cooperation brings along advantages but it also brings along responsibilities.
On the other side there are disadvantages and responsibilities: you will have to communicate with other developers about your work, other people might make changes to your code, you will have to respect release freezes, you get tons of bugreports and people actually expect that you fix them as well (what are they smoking?), people expect you to maintain your code. You can't chose for the advantages and ignore the responsibilities that come with it, it's a complete package, it's both or nothing. In general it should be the author of a piece of software that chooses to put his application in KDE's repositories. We usually don't put software in KDE's repositories unless the author wishes to do so. The other way around, if the author prefers to work on his application elsewhere then that's his right as well. Unless there is a split in the actual group of people working on the application it makes no sense to fork the development of an application because of that. BUT... by putting your code under and open source license and putting it in a KDE repository you give the world at large, as well as KDE in particular, the irrevocable right to use your code. And KDE will use that right at its discretion to protect the interests of KDE, even if that goes against the wishes of the author at that point in time.
- Some of those advantages are: your code ends up on all distro's, people might fix your bugs, you get free translations and documentation, you get tons of bugreports.

Go to [KDE Identity] , fill out the form and describe why you need write access. Make sure to specify your full name and e-mail address.
Please also include the name of your bugs.kde.org account, if non-existent please create one so that it can be given usual developer rights. Closing bugs.kde.org reports with keywords in commit comments only works if the email address of your KDE Identity and bugs.kde.org accounts match. You can change your bugs.kde.org address in the Bugzilla user settings.
Git requires use of an ssh key, and new accounts for SVN must also choose the svn+ssh protocol. Send a public ssh key (e.g. ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub)
See also #How do I create a SSH key?
Although there are few restrictions on repository commit rights, we expect you not to disrupt other developers' code without their consent. You must also respect the feature freezes of the release schedule (published on developer.kde.org)
A detailed list of rules you should follow when committing to KDE repositories are listed in the KDE Commit Policy.
As a first step, we can put it in playground, which is essentially "kde-alpha". Develop it there and when it is ready, request that your app to be moved to the appropriate KDE package or the extragear module.
This is no longer possible with Subversion. Maybe in the future, if the server is upgraded and allows that. Note that for git this is not an issue.
It contains Qt bindings for Ruby, PHP, C# to use Qt classes with those langages, KDE bindings for Ruby, C#, python to use KDE classes with those langages, and XParts to embed non-KDE apps as a KPart. Check the binding page of TechBase.
Yes, check the Building 2 Versions documentation.
kde-config and all kde programs accept --version as argument.
For instance, to get only reaktivate from playground/utils:
svn co -N /playground/utils; svn up reaktivate
Then compile as usual.
The same answer applies to the question "How do I get a single language out of kde-i18n?".
BUG: XXXXX where XXXXX is the bug report you want to close. If the report you're closing is adding a new feature, you can use FEATURE instead of BUG.
Generate a key pair for each major location you work from. This helps to reduce the impact when your key gets stolen. When someone obtains access to your private key, your key can be abused in attempts to compromise KDE servers. Well known open source projects have been compromised this way in the past, YOU must help us to make sure that this doesn't happen with KDE servers as well. For that reason it is important to notify sysadmin (at) kde (dot) org immediately when you notice that someone may have had access to your private key for example when a computer on which it was stored has been hacked or infected with a virus, worm or trojan.
For the practical part, the following command can be used to generate a SSH private/public key pair with
ssh-keygen -t dsa
This will create a private key as ~/.ssh/id_dsa and a public key as ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub.
There are times when you may want to use a key of a different name to the default, perhaps to use separate keys for different projects. To let SSH know which key you want to use for KDE.org, you can keep a list of servers and their corresponding keys in ~/.ssh/config. For example,
Host svn.kde.org IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_dsa_kde
The kde-commits mailinglist carries automatic notifications for all changes made in the KDE repositories. The KDE-Commits mailinglist is very high traffic. An alternative is CommitFilter which allows you to get notification for only those areas that interest you.
