In a few short days we’ve already got the colord-kde repo up, and Daniel and I have been writing some initial code. Several more people have offered to help this week too.
If you know C++ and Qt please send me a patch for one of the TODOs in the kded module. Most are simple, for instance //TODO: get the md5 checksum of the data
GNOME has been a color managed desktop by default for two releases now, and I deliberately designed colord to have an open Freedesktop DBus API that could be used by both desktops. I am a little disappointed in KDE that it hasn’t made the jump too. Really, KDE just has to include a KCM module to do the 6 things on this list and also perhaps include a simple control center panel to configure it.
Basically, I need a KDE dude. Of course, I can help quite a lot and mentor the project, but I’ve never really coded Qt or C++ in anger, so to speak. If you’re interested, I could maybe even set up a Google summer of code place as well, although I’d prefer it to be an existing person familiar with the KDE community so there is some ongoing maintainer.
If anybody is interested, let me know and I’ll set up a meeting and we can talk and discuss details. Thanks.
