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?

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
