== Introduction ==
+
</translate>
There are several possible ways to build and install KDE and the method you choose depends on what you want to do with KDE once it is built.  The table below provides some guidance in making this decision, but before you start please read the rest of the page for more detailed information on Getting Started.

== Getting Help ==
+
If you have any questions or issues related to building and developing KDE feel free to [[Development/Getting_Help|ask us]]. However, be patient and do expect to be attempting to work through the issue as well (we aren't just going to do it ''all'' for you).
+
 
+
== Source Repositories and Revision Control ==
+
Currently, KDE SC source code is for the most part, accessed using git. For those modules that are still in svn, consult: [[Getting_Started/Sources/Anonymous_SVN]].
+
 
+
[[Getting_Started/Sources/Amarok_Git_Tutorial|Amarok has already migrated to Git]], as well as many other modules modules (phonon, parts of kdesupport, kdelibs, kdebase, kdeplasma-addons). Until we are fully migrated at least, it is recommended to use kdesrc-build if you can, as it takes care of all of this for you.
+
 
+
== Development Tools ==
+
You will likely want to use a stable package from your distribution instead of the ones of the KDE version you are working on.
+
 
+
For most development topics, and documentation, see [[Development]]

=== Platform ===
+
For instructions on installing KDE SC on Windows, BSD, or Mac OS X, or instructions for installing KDE3, please see the [[Getting_Started/Build|other supported platforms]] page. There are also [[Getting_Started/Build/KDE4.x_Upgrade|upgrade instructions from a branch to trunk]].

+
== Contributing To KDE ==
+
Once you have a copy of KDE built you can then start contributing back to KDE.  The pages below will help you find out how you can help make KDE even better.
