We would want to increase the number of projects working within KDE. This task aims to lay out which existing projects we should approach to try and convince them to join our community. This would help us increase our portfolio and app catalogue, making our platform more attractive to users (= a larger catalogue of apps to install and use) and contributors (= a larger variety of projects to chose to work on). The community would grow with members of already active projects, thus increasing our reach with every project added. One would expect it would make KDE more attractive to a wider variety of sponsors.
The projects that joined us would be able to increase number of contributors (developers, artists, translators) working on their product, increasing the bus factor. They would be able to take advantage of KDE's infrastructure and services (like Promo), while at the same time increasing the probability of obtaining sponsorship and funding. Finally they would be working with like-minded colleagues.
We will approach the main developers of the project, preferably through a common acquaintance, and pitch our offer. To ensure we can accommodate the project, we will work with the onboarding project (T7116) members so we are ready to accept mature projects into the fold.
@paulb 's personal wishlist:
Projects that overlap in functionality and/or aim of working projects already within the KDE community.
Add you ideas, comments or suggestions for projects to contact (and preferably a way to contact them) in the comments below.
