Fedora KDE Special Interest Group


The KDE SIG (Special Interest Group) is a group of Fedora contributors that maintain KDE packages in Fedora, as well as the KDE Spin. Their mission is to provide high-quality, usable KDE software packages to Fedora users and developers, and to support one another in maintaining those packages.


The KDE SIG conducts meetings on Mondays at 1800 UTC, with a meeting duration of 1 hour. These take place here on KDE's BigBlueButton instance. In here, we will discuss issues and improvements related the KDE software stack on Fedora, especially those that are filed on our issue tracker. We mostly communicate using voice chat, and some of us will share camera feeds. There is also text chat if you prefer that. Here is the meeting calendar.

We also have Matrix and IRC (#fedora-kde[?]) rooms, both of which are bridged to each other.

For more formal proposals, bug reports, suggestions, etc, we have a Pagure issue tracker.

How you can help

If you have no idea how to help us, here are some areas we always need help with:

  • Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged for Fedora. If you want to see it in Fedora, here are Fedora's packaging guidelines.
  • Reviewers: Only a few people are doing kde-related reviews. Help us review so that more packages can be included.
  • Testing/QA: If you want to help test KDE software, use the updates-testing repository, and report bugs here. You might also like to get acquainted with Fedora's QA process.
  • Wiki: Maintain KDE-related wiki pages and keep the info up-to-date. Here is a good place to start.
