1 The Gentoo Qt Project wants your help!
2 ======================================
4 The Gentoo Qt Project is a small team responsible for maintaining the Qt
5 libraries and associated applications within our beloved distro. Over time
6 the number of packages we maintain has grown. Not only is there quite some
7 work to be done to get the shiny new Qt5 version ready for the portage tree,
8 we now also have our own light-weight Qt-based desktop environment in
9 Razor-qt, as well as a growing number of Qt-based applications.
11 Recently a few of our team members have left to do other things, so we are
12 looking for new people to help us out! Whatever your skill level, there is
13 probably something you can do to help! We specifically are looking for
14 people to help us to do the following:
16 1. Get Qt5 ready for inclusion in the tree. This includes writing and
17 improving ebuilds and eclasses, testing to build those, filing bug reports
18 on failure, finding fixes for those bugs, reporting problems upstream. We
19 do development in the "qt" overlay, using git.
21 2. Application maintenance. At the moment we simply don't have the manpower
22 to actively maintain all Qt-based applications that we have an interest in.
23 A number of those could use a more dedicated maintainer. This can be either
24 a Gentoo developer or a proxy-maintainer. You would be responsible for
25 spotting version bumps, updating ebuilds, handling bug reports and contacting
26 upstream developers where necessary. An overview of the packages we
27 (co-)maintain is here:
28 For a specific list of packages we could use help with, see below.
30 3. Bug handling. See for our open bugs. We can use
31 help to test and confirm bugs and proposed patches; to see if bugs are filed
32 upstream and if there are patches available; to keep an eye on bug-fix
33 releases.
35 4. Documentation. We would like to see more user guides, and updates to our
36 FAQ, on the Gentoo Wiki.
38 What we can give you is a friendly developer team, with members spread all
39 over the world; assistance with ebuild writing skills; commit access to a
40 lively git-based overlay, even if you are not a developer; mentoring in case
41 you do want to become a developer; a dedicated #gentoo-qt IRC channel; and
42 the satisfaction that you help improving Gentoo, the distro we all love.
44 You can contact us on qt@g.o, or the #gentoo-qt IRC channel.
