paulb added a comment to T7837: Akademy 2018: Media coverage.

Over the months, I have been collecting all mentions of "KDE" in online publications. The table (available from the Promo's shared directory on share.kde.org) collects the date the article was published, the name of the publication, the name of the article, the URL, some key words, whether KDE (or Plasma, or KDE apps) were the central focus of the article, and the name of the author. Interestingly, some authors come up again and again, which makes me think that these may be writers sympathetic to KDE-based tech. I am going to start a new subtask with a table with the details of these authors. If you can think of anyone else, it would be good if you could help me complete it.

paulb added a comment to T7790: Growing Plasma Mobile: Goal: Onboarding of new contributors.

As for https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved, I think this would be a good step 2, but the text again needs some serious editing. The parts about Phabricator, for example, need cleaning up, taking out the section where the author mentions what it is built on and other irrelevant bits, and focusing on the features which will be immediately interesting for a newcomer. Also, illustrating with some images would help clarify things for people unfamiliar with the platform.

Regarding the part about increasing the number of contributions, we must dovetail this project with T7116. It is beyond the scope of promo to intervene in the processes by which potential contributors become actual contributors, but we cannot invite contributors to help and find there is not a protocol in place to help them become active coding members of the community.

This is something for somebody that has experience with GSoC to answer, a mentor from past years. From my own ignorance, it doesn't sound mad at all. Maybe it would need a very concrete goal, though, now just "work on Plasma Mobile", but more like "implement XYZ in Plasma Mobile", "Solve the PQR issuse in Plasma Mobile" or something like that. This is probably something @bshah should weigh in on.
