A quick intro for potential plasma contributors *Plasma uses [[Policies/Kdelibs_Coding_Style|kdelibs coding style]]. there's a file in svn that makes vim follow this automatically: [http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdesdk/scripts/kde-devel-vim.vim?view=log 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 [http://reviewboard.vidsolbach.de review board] to post patches to (sadly it only works in firefox), and a script to easily post patches. the original script and instructions for using it are [http://aseigo.blogspot.com/2008/02/post-review-plasma.html on aaron's blog]. note that the reviewboard url and path have changed since that post; here's an up-to-date [http://chani.ccdevnet.org/plasma/sample.reviewboardrc sample .reviewboardrc]. if you're using git-svn, you will want the [http://chani.ccdevnet.org/plasma/post-review-plasma updated script], plus [http://chani.ccdevnet.org/plasma/git-svn-diff this script] for producing compatible diffs. *our mailing list is [http://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/plasma-devel plasma-devel] ([http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-plasma-devel&r=1&w=2 archives]). the old mailing list was [http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-panel-devel&r=1&w=2 panel-devel]. bugs go to a separate list, [http://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/plasma-bugs plasma-bugs]. *of course, the rest of techbase has lots of important information about contributing to kde in general; you've read that stuff, right?
