Hi @bdhruve , before responding to your suggestions, I would like to be sure if you are referring to this guide: https://community.kde.org/Plasma/DeveloperGuide

Or is it about something else?

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.

Well from my end i was going through the Kde-dev-guide, and i offered a few suggestions to Valorie would love to share here as well,
ln the Dev guide it states KDE from developers viewpoint, we could add some thing like KDE from a new contributor point of view or some other nice term, and in this we could give information about:

A good next step might be creating a formal Phabricator group for this, to which people could add themselves. Then for example we could document that new contributors should add the group as a reviewer for their first patches, which could help make sure that those critical first patches don't get lost and always have someone available who can help. Thoughts?

Ι sent a reminder around a week ago to the people I've been in talks with here in Athens to see if they can provide the place after all but I haven't received any answer yet, other than the acknowledgement that they are indeed late to respond.

@aacid: right, for a lot a big shared room is fine and for most a two persons room is fine. But I think we also need the possibility for people to have a single room one or two.

Something else that might be very useful in this regard, would be a way to flag, tag, sort, ... tickets by programming language or other skills one would need to accomplish a task.

I'm going to pull the automated NEEDSINFO handling from here, since this task is specific to new bug reporter experience. I'll work with Harald or whoever else would like to help. For now, I have a manual set of searches that seem to work well enough. I have some other automation ideas as well, so I'll just track that all in a separate task.

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.

fabianr added a comment to T8686: Junior Jobs.

Maybe we could add a "Junior Job" tag to phabricator? At the moment junior jobs are spread all over phabricator and hard to find. With a global "Junior Job" tag we could collect all these jobs in one place and new contributors could search threw them to find something that fits them.

aacid added a comment to T8622: sprint for privacy goal.

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.

What made you step and and decide to contribute to KDE?
I've always wanted to contribute to something. I was very happy with what is going on in KDE lately (Plasma in particular but also the more common apps) and Nate's blog made it seem very approachable, even for someone new to KDE/Qt/C++.

@ngraham are you suggesting to form a group for mentors on Phabricator? If yes, I have some suggestions on that, but we should probably continue this discussion on T8713. Let me know and I'll post my comments there.

Oh, maybe I'm stating the obvious, but the whole patch submission process is absolutely bearable. Nothing fancy. The problem lies more in the way it is explained. Once you have Neon and arc running, it's a breeze.
