On thing we could use is an official policy regarding whether the stable or master branch is more appropriate for any given patch. Right now it's often not clear for edge cases such as D10651: Fix thumbnail hover icon show-in-fullscreen action. In that patch, a bug was fixed that led to a behavior change. Stable or master? We committed to master to be safe, but it wasn't as clear as we would have preferred.

Recently, I tried to find out KDE best practices to work with Docbook.

I really like UHD's explanatory text above the login box. We should implement that, with some short documentation and a link pointing to identity.kde.org. Who has the power to do this? KDE Sysadmins?

Out of curiosity, what are our criteria for considering this task done?

Well, I reply to myself as I got the following notification just after making the post above :
https://phabricator.kde.org/D10461
gmenu-dbusmenu-proxy
"This application finds windows using GTK GMenu DBus interfaces [1] and forwards them through DBusMenu. This way no adjustments in Plasma are needed."

Hi ! I wonder whether this one would fit in the KDE usability list : global menus don't work with GTK apps, cf :

Hi everyone, I feel bad for being quiet over the last couple of weeks. Lots of changes happening in Jan-Feb for me, and also FOSDEM and the KDE Promo sprint are coming up. I'll try to push this goal forward in a consistent way once all these have passed.

@ngraham Great to hear that. I will be one of the first to test your explanations if they are also ready for noobs like me :-D And provide my feedback of course.

Yes, it will be a redirect to https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved

Is it going to be a redirect to the existing pages? The example of page shown is a bit too much developer-oriented compared to https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved

@mmustac Yup, I've proposed that and already gotten buy-in and permission to do it. Just working on getting my access to change the page.

What abput editing the "Get involved" page on kde.org as first step?
I am missing an up2date step by step guide to get a working development environment.

FWIW, I updated https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved#Getting_in_touch_and_working_together with a more clear and concise description of how to sign up and log into Phabricator.

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 :)

I think we could obtain the relevant list of contributors from the sysadmins: all accounts that were created since last Akademy.

dhaumann added a comment to T7116: Streamlined onboarding of new contributors.

I would like to add another todo item to the list: All new contributors (e.g. the ones who committed a patch for the first time within the last year) should get a personal email, asking them to please attend the KDE conference. I think Akademy is an integral part of holding people together. As such, we need to push those a bit who are unsure (I was in this situation myself in 2004).

SO, being very much green I wanted to ask you or anyone where/who I would go to for website edits. After some searching, I quickly found the webpage is wiki style. Because of how crazy it has been, I had to ask in the irc how to get to the registration link again so I can submit sample language and placement on community.kde.org. Wouldn't you know, valorie and I started talking about the issue, and bingo, she agreed to put changes to page as suggested. I also pitched for the auto-forward link like mozilla. Pretty cool! This is my first contribution...and it was surprising to see how easy and simple it was. Thanks again for the support and encouragement.

@michaelh With your goals in mind, you could go to kde.org, and see how you manage to get directions from there for what you want to do, and write down what you think is missing, needs improvement, or is awesome as it is, and then provide such feedback here.

I would say no extensive documentation is needed when the interface is obvious on itself.

Thanks for the video, you are making good progress towards changing things for the better. There are two root problems I can extract from it:
