The KDE Applications website was a minimal possible change to move it from an unmaintained and incomplete site to a self-maintaining and complete site. It’s been fun to see it get picked up in places like Ubuntu Weekly News, Late Night Linux and chatting to people in real life they have seen it get an update. So clearly it’s important to keep our websites maintained. Alas the social and technical barriers are too high in KDE. My current hope is that the Promo team will take over the kde-www stuff giving it communication channels and transparancy that doesn’t currently exist. There is plenty more work to be done on kde.org/applications website to make it useful, do give me a ping if you want to help out.
In the mean time I’ve updated the kde.org front page text box where there is a brief description of KDE. I remember a keynote from Aaron around 2010 at Akademy where he slagged off the description that was used on kde.org. Since then we have had Visions and Missions and Goals and whatnot defined but nobody has thought to put them on the website. So here’s the new way of presenting KDE to the world:
Thanks to Carl and others for review.
