The Interview

In what ways do you make a contribution to KDE?

As with most other KDE developers I do a little bit of each. I try to help the KDE-artists with technical issues, have been involved with Free Desktop's icon naming spec (seconded by the Tango project), and written parts of kdelibs' KUtils library, for example. Occasionally, I stir the water with an article or two.

Most recently I have, together with the other members of the KDOM team, been working on various XML technologies for KDE 4.0.

How and when did you get involved in KDE?
