The recently introduced KWallet support in VLC is cool; can it also be implemented for Firefox? When a master password is set, Firefox asks for it on every launch, which for me is usually just after unlocking my Wi-Fi passwords with KWallet. If Firefox could make use of KWallet (like Chrome and Opera do), it'd be one password prompt less on every device boot :)

That would be tracked by https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=278343

Its age doesn't give me a lot of hope for a fix from Mozilla. I suspect this is one of those cases where if we want it, it'll be up to us to produce and champion the patch.

We had a similar discussion in Akademy! Since string tags can't be added, we have to create either a group or a project.
Then, we may use the phabricator API to serve the junior jobs wherever needed. And, why not, create sth similar to the findyourway of plasmobile for KDE junior jobs in general.

AFAIK two people in two beds in a room is the default that KDE eV sponsored solution since basically halves the price for hotels in rooms, sharing more then 2 people in a room gets annoying and usually is avoided and only one person per room is too expensive and only granted in some cases, but please confirm with the board what i'm saying is true.

Yeah exactly, something like that. Where they can git clone (making sure their gitconfig is correct, like how mine wasn't recently), make a branch (and track master), mess it up (lol I've never done that!), submit it via arc diff, tell them how their Git commit is too wordy and needs to break at 80 chars (*ehm* again, never done that before), have someone (newcomer group?) review it and accept it, and then have them arc land it.

but, most require you to be rather scouty, as it is 3 layered bunk beds with 5-6 beds in a room - there's usually a big kitchen (though we would have to cook for ourselves) and only 1 common room, so the work room and eating area would be the same room (unless you want to use the outdoors, which is always dicey with the weather)

What made you step and and decide to contribute to KDE?

  • Besides enjoying the DE, it appeared to be a community that was making smart decisions (2017 Goals for example) and was growing.

What was your point of entry to KDE?

  • Nate's blog posts basically, and Nate himself.

In what area are you contributing to (development, translation, documentation etc.)?

  • Right now a mix of development and bug triaging, with maybe documentation later.

How did you decide where to contribute?

  • I decided to work in areas that will help in the 2017 Goals. I like the productivity goal to polish the DE, and I like the onboarding goal to make the project easier to join. Helping a long-time FLOSS project grow is something I'd like to do. Right now my development efforts are small patches, since I'm not much of a programmer right now. Just things I know I can handle. So I'm now focusing on bug triaging, to hopefully assist those who do know how to program well.

What steps did you follow to get involved?

  • I started out talking with Nate, he helped me through the 1-2-3 of getting signed up with my various accounts and a dev evironment. He and Henrik recommended some Phabricator Tasks and bugs/feature requests to tackle. Mostly icon fixes, menu edits, stuff like that. From there, I just spent time browsing randomly through Phabricator, finding Tasks and Projects that were interesting. Watching the Activity feed on the right is also helpful to see what cool things are happening and might be worth looking at to offer comments or assistance.

What did you enjoy most in the process of joining KDE?

  • The friendliness of everyone, and the ease of joining. There were no trials or tests to go through.

What where the difficulties you came across?

  • The introductory process of reading Wiki pages. Even with the improvements to Get Involved, there is no easy 1-2-3, here is how you get started. For example, to get started as a developer, you are pointed to an article, which has lots of information, sure, but is not a set procedure really. I was looking for something like:

I hope not, I'd rather keep it in-house.

I'm sure that there is no need to use Google Calendar after all the effort to move part of release schedule and promo stuff out of it...

Hi everyone just thought I'd drop a note here as well. I've had @sysadmin recreate the Bugsquad, but in Phabricator for easy collaboration. I'd like to resurrect it, with a set schedule of triaging days. I've asked @sysadmin about adding a calendar to the project, or allowing other Calendar edit access. If not, I'll create a Google Calendar people can subscribe to I suppose.

I agree with keeping UNCONFIRMED/CONFIRMED. I was going to make an argument for keeping that as I think it makes sense. Bugs come in, someone looks at it, and reproduces it (or takes other action). So for the triagers I think it makes sense to be able to easily find bugs that have not been reproduced yet.

I would restart from the previous discussion (on kde-community@, and probably elsewhere; for sure it should be discussed on the list).

Done now. So what's next? My sense is that we probably should keep UNCONFIRMED/CONFIRMED now that our bugs are more actively triaged, since there's some value to the distinction.

Not sure if you did apply the changes already, but in case you did not, please leave open:

  • atlantik and atlantikdesigner (on the process of being reimported, one is on git already)
  • kgrapheditor is technically part of the released kgraphviewer, even if disabled by default for now iirc, but still "released"

Actually many these are already closed, and the remaining ones are obviously obsolete and unmaintained (no bugs, says "unmaintained", etc). I don't think there's much of a possibility for problems here. Starting the work. It's easy enough to re-open anything that needs re-opening (but I doubt it).

Thanks so much, @acrouthamel. That list looks sane to me. Anyone else wanna spot-check it?
