Hi board and marketing list!
We're putting together information for the Desktop Summit Press Kit, and
one of the sections is "hot issues" for both KDE and GNOME.
here's the KDE draft so far:
> Key issues for KDE at the Desktop Summit The KDE community will use
> the opportunity of the Desktop Summit gathering to discuss:
> * KDE and its relationship with the larger free and open source
> software picture, including cooperation with other FOSS projects, our
> relationships with downstream distributions, as well as upstream
> technology provides, especially Nokia and Qt.
> * The KDE mobile strategy regarding Plasma Active and QML. These
> strategies will be shaped by how the market is evolving with the
> rapid growth of tablets and smartphones and our role, as a
> traditionally desktop community, playing into that.
> * Our Cloud strategy: Project Silk, ownCloud; how we see the market
> evolving with the advent of web technology and online data and how do
> we see our role, as a traditionally desktop community, playing into
> * Plans for the upcoming KDE Desktop and Applications 4.8 releases.
> * "KDE in 5 years" => KDE Frameworks (evolution of the Platform
> towards modularity and more level-playing-field integration with Qt),
> future of the desktop as well as the other form factors, mainstream
What do you think I should include?
Suggestions I've got already are:
The GNOME community will use the opportunity of the Desktop Summit
gathering to discuss the following 'hot' items in the community:
* GNOME 3; how to help the distributions to package GNOME 3 and ease the
overall adoption of its use and development, seeking feedback to help with
design and architecture
* Improving the collaboration with KDE for the lower levels of the stack
Also, I am pulling general GNOME information off of the website, like on
the 'about" page, but are there any other GNOME promo materials that have
been put together in the past?
