Thanks @sandroandrade , I 'll reach out to the author and try to get some first hand insight on mozilla's procedures and experience.

FWIW I may be interested in attending, i didn't add myself to the list above because I would not want to be a "voter" on the place/date but i would be interested in being notified when the place/date is chosen to see if i can join :)

filipesaraiva added a comment to T6895: Making KDE software the #1 choice for research and academia.

Hello all, last year during KDE Edu sprint there was a discussion about create an "KDE Research/Science/etc" umbrella for some Edu applications more related to academia works, like Cantor, Kile, KBibTeX, RKward, and others cited in this thread. Maybe this new umbrella could be a motivation to a website or other actions related to this.

skadinna added a comment to T8710: Documentation: maintaining an updated Get Involved page.

@nicolasfella that's a really major issue, yes. However, I think we should stick to the "Get Involved" page here in this task, so that we don't broaden its scope/discussion too much. Cleaning up the whole wiki could be a separate task, with subtasks for every main section that people can assign to themselves (because doing the whole thing at once might be too much for one person).

nicolasfella added a comment to T8710: Documentation: maintaining an updated Get Involved page.

One thing I noticed in the Wiki is a huge amount of broken links. Those should be updated (if possible) or removed. Maybe one could do some kind of webcrawler that scans our whole wiki for broken links.

xyquadrat added a comment to T6832: Improvements to Bugzilla - Making it easier and simpler.

Hm, is there a compelling reason to remove obsolete products from the database? If they are marked as obsolete, no new bugs can be filed against it anyway, and those should not show up in a browsable list for the user. Of course if you have admin rights they will show, but how often does an admin have to browse a product list without a filter?

I must admit that I just realized that the list of apps you can report a bug against is not the same as the ones accessible through clicking "Browse"...
But I think we should consider hiding the obsolete products not only when reporting bugs, but also in a) the advanced search & b) in the list from Browse. It'd simplify the search process for triagers a lot. Additionally, there are some products which are obsolete but you can still file bugs against them (e.g kaveau).

lueck added a comment to T6832: Improvements to Bugzilla - Making it easier and simpler.

I decided to do something remotely useful with my free time and sifted through all applications/libraries present on bugs.kde.org, removing most obsolete products. My guidelines to determine whether a product was deprecated were:

  1. Is the product not marked as "unmaintained"/"deprecated"/"replaced"?
  2. Is the product in the repositories of Ubuntu LTS?
  3. Is the product on cgit.kde.org?
  4. If it is on cgit.kde.org, does it have any activity in the last year?

    After applying this criteria to all 737 (!) products available, only 455 remained (so nearly 300 products are obsolete, and should be removed from bugs.kde.org). It is of course entirely possible that I have either missed a deprecated product or have accidentally deleted an active product... Feedback is always welcome!

    All products:

    Only active ones:

Ok, so it seems that you only created a list and you are asking for feedback. Fine then, sorry for the misunderstanding, the wording could be misleading.

ltoscano added a comment to T6832: Improvements to Bugzilla - Making it easier and simpler.

Just to be sure, @xyquadrat : did you already remove the products? In the future, don't remove first and ask later, but do the opposite. It's a bit too late to ask whether you had accidentally deleted an active product.

dkardarakos updated subscribers of T8686: Junior Jobs.

Following a discussion with @bshah about T8685, we opted for revamping Plasma Mobile phabricator tasks. The status of many tasks has been changed in order to avoid offering to the potential contributor a task already done.

I'm not a developer, so perhaps I'm missing important aspects here, but how about using a common template with the things that would interest people, so they can quickly review what's it about before going into the details?

sharvey added a comment to T8686: Junior Jobs.

What constitutes a "junior job" does indeed vary immensely. The maintainers or "lead" developers need to flag bugs carefully and appropriately. I've worked on junior jobs that ranged from string and icon changes, to adding a new API call to KWin. These were all referred to as JJ's, but they're definitely on different levels.

I sometimes try IRC but that does not work very well, because a developer needs to be online at the same time you are online

simgunz added a comment to T8712: Forming a welcome team to guide newcomers.

The link to the Mentoring page is literally the last word of the Getting involved page. I did read the getting involved page (maybe with not too much attention), but I did not reach the mentoring page and did not figured out I could contact a developer directly. Maybe this link can be highlight better somehow?

I don't think anyone's proposing an easy-but-broken method of brute-forcing the first commit. Rather, I think we're all discussing how to make it easier to get started the right way so that first commit is not only easier, but also conforms to KDE best practices.

The translation teams have said various times in the past that translations from random people in the internet with no commitment usually just bring in more work than they help since they totally fail at syntax, style guide, etc. I wouldn't be sure this has changed at all.

I mean would you let people edit code form the internet and submit a patch directly without having them compile and try it whatsoever? Probably not, so why would it be different for translations?
