somehow i ended up on the e.V. board this year. and by "somehow" i mean "i thought about it for a few weeks, then volunteered myself, was voted in by the membership and accepted". i've been thinking more about organizational things since all this went down ...
... kde as a project has grown beyond anyone's 1990s-era expectations. we have more and more contributors joining, more and more code in svn, more and more users, more and more industry contacts and groups, more and more .. well, more and more of just about everything.
and we're heading towards a very exciting kde4 release, one in which the open source desktop is going to grow up from the promising adolescent it is now to being the exciting yet mature adult we've all been working towards.
to support the fruits of our growth and growing vision, we need processes and organization that are built around delegation, coordination and communication. we've been working this week on exactly such things as a unified body of contributors to meet the challenges our successes are bringing.
the events which will unfold in the coming weeks are going to be exciting and, for KDE, ground breaking.
