KDE Long Term Goals and increasing diversity via a coc

Elijah Davis
Elijah Davis

The community is largely homogeneous with regard to gender, race, class and geographical extraction, being made up mainly by white male middle class European engineers.
Help increase diversity: Over the next 5 years help promote diversity and collaborate in attracting contributors in order to get close to having the same proportion of men, women, and other genders as there are in the real world. Likewise promote KDE as a community all over the world to contribute to recruiting contributors so as to achieve a balanced representation of the largest number of ethnicities and nationalities as possible among contributors. At the moment, the community is composed mainly by white male Europeans. The goal is to add 5 percentile of minority contributors to the community every year over the next 5 years, without decreasing the number of contributors KDE already has. We can do this by carrying out actions that target under-represented genders, ethnicities and people with disabilities, so that we can tap undiscovered talent, receive input and help from a larger slice of the population, and better adapt KDE's software to the needs of wider selection of the population. We can take a page from Wikimedia's playbook on how to encourage under-represented groups to participate in KDE's community. Implement and enforce a strict CoC both for the community and each event against discrimination and harassment. Also, move main event (Akademy) away from Europe and encourage sprints and events in other places, like Asia, South America and Africa, as well as activities devise activities which will appeal to minorities.

If any of the KDE contributors comes here please stop this madness you don't need "diversity" you need people who wants to contribute and especially people who does it well.Skin color, race, sex is not important. If you force yourselves to have such goals instead of just wanting to just grow a better community then you'll have people who think that race, sex, nationality etc... is more important than the project/code.

These days "diversity" it top priority and stands way above quality, merit, or maybe even profit (in case of for-profit organisations).

CoCs and leftist ideologies are spreading everywhere. More news at 11. Diversifying will only make the matters worse. Now if some of the mentioned minorities wants to change something, leadership will not oppose it out of fear of being a bigoted white male. What they need is a strong leader with vision and no tolerance for sloppily made shit that gets merged on daily basis. They need a software engineer version of Gordon Ramsay to tell those cunts to fuck off. Fucking donuts.

That's outrage marketing, like the all-girl Ghostbusters flick: when you realize that you have an absolute stinker in your hands, present yourself
as woke and progressive. So when people complain, you can call them shitlords and trumpers or whatever, and the media will even help. It's not really meant to win audiences, it's meant to cover your own ass.

And KDE has been an absolute stinker for a long time now...

The wiki article's written by a non-veteran. Pic related is what a future KDE diversity promotion looks like. KDE is pozzed regardless.

LXDE and Window Maker's original developers are Taiwanese and Brazilian Japanese respectively.

Why not try TDE, a KDE fork?

I'm using TDE right now, actually, and a lot of the software that comes with it. Definitely one of the best DEs (I tried all of them at some point, and most of them are complete shit and I can't even understand how there are actual human beings on this planet that use that shit). KDE is really slow and it's kind of a mess overall. TDE is better designed for sure, and good enough, especially on an operating system with retarded devs that can't design a GUI to save their lives and never run out of excuses to not do things correctly. TDE is at least almost as usable as the better versions of Windows, and it does many things a lot better, actually, so that's new.

Another strong point is that it allowed me to get rid of most of the disjointedness of my previous setup, and that you inevitably get from using just a window manager. Having a bunch of software all made by different people, that work in completely different ways, is really annoying. And most of them don't have basic features that I'm used to anyway, and are heavier than their Windows counterparts. I'm not a ricefag, I actually use my computer, and customizing it is not my hobby, so it's nice to finally use something like this after years of trying to make something comfortable and never quite getting there.

The unbeatable feature of KDE for me is how you can show all open windows by moving your cursor to the upper-left corner... any other DE/WM with similar functionality?

Maybe they've used something faster and you haven't, therefore making your perceived speed normal even if it is slow relative to other options. Try running something like openbox or i3 and it'll probably feel speedier.

i used to like xfce until I tried lxde
you might not notice the speed difference unless your in a VM, but there is a speed difference. It definitely has some annoyances though.

The lxde terminal for example. It has tabs, but you cannot move the tabs around, you can move them from left to right and re-organize the tabs.

Maybe this feature is bloat but I installed xfce4-terminal instead inside of lxde because of it.

Openbox, PCmanFM and Leafpad all have basic shit missing or wrong with them and Lxqt is ass

Adam Smith

Lxqt is ass
This. LXQt is basically an attempt to make a more bloated version of LXDE, with the latter's creator's full involvement (leaving LXDE in the dust in the process).

Grayson Hughes

LXDE
No matter how shit it is, it can't be more shit than LXDE.
the latter's creator's full involvement
Probably because LXDE is so shit, the control panel crashes with the wrong icon set.

Zachary Lopez

LXQt is also abhorrently ugly. The default black GUI and tiny buttons look like a reskinned Windows XP.
Maybe that only happens if you lack the KDE theming, etc. libraries.

Implying KDE will ever be developed by people that aren't straight white europeans.
Implying pajeets and wamen are smart enough to stray away from whatever desktop Red Hat gives them (GNOME).
Implying pajeets and wamen could actually grok a codebase that you can't merely const everything and pretend you contributed.
Implying you shouldn't contribute to FOSS using pseudonyms to avoid doxing yourself to non-potential-employers.

God damn you faggots scream "sky-is-falling" at the drop of a hat. I'm going to keep enjoying my comfy desktop created by straight white european males. You keep doing you.

Lumina Desktop is pretty comfy, guys. Made by the PC-BSD guys, written in Qt5, uses Openbox (up till recently) as the WM, and is fast as fuck. Was surprised I didn't hate it. I wish lxqt and Plasma were this fast.

MATE users can go sit on a cactus. Openbox and Icewm or Xfce and LXDE/LXQT are just better than horse shit like MATtE or Chinamon. MATE/Cinnamon users are almost as bad as the subhumans who keep on using GNOME/KDE.

In these open source projects, what's stopping white males from just saying they are colored females online? Seems like you'd have a lot more pull in projects if you just said
hi I'm Shananaquifecta Barbie Jones I'm a black transgender please use my pronouns and accept this code
What are they going to do, ask, you to prove it?

Why would a white person want to avoid self hating whites?
Minorities don't use kde. Minorities don't develop kde. The developers of kde are mostly (mentally ill) whites.

William Lewis

So are you saying that minorities are smart enough not to use a shitty DE with fuckhuge memory leaks? Last time I used KDE some process named baloo-file was using %100 capacity of one of CPU cores.

And it wasn't just me:
forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?t=120468
This problem was reported back in 2014 and was still prevalent when I made the mistake of using KDE last year.

I wonder if we'll get to the point where SJWs do not want to fix bugs that overwrite minority written code. You cannot have good quality control diminishing your diversity line count.

This is way too true and so fucking annoying when you try to merge your modifications of older code into a newer version. Maybe I should adobt their tactics too, it seems to work.

David Cruz

If you contribute to a project that officially claims your contributions as less worthy because of your skin color then you legitimize such claims and at the same time degrade yourself. That is the whole point of them doing this, to claim being white is wrong and use the status and fame of the project to legitimize their claims. To participate you must to some extent accept that they can force their vile politics on you or atleast that is how it appears to other people. It's a old psychological trick to degrade you and make you feel powerless at same time. Keep your conscience and dignity, bro.

But KDE already had a coc, from 2007 or so (although it was feminazi and sjw free then or something like that, maybe).
Qt is planning to make a feminazi coc. wiki.qt.io/QtCS2017_Qt_Project_Code_of_Conduct
I think that cocs in the way feminazis, sjws, etc. see them are completely unnecessary, useless and harmful. and almost all of the others too. Medieval ones, etc. are safe, I think. (I remember when a project jokingly adopted a christian saint's pledge for one day or so, it is very long and stringent, sjws hated it I imagine).
