Hello Jonathan,

Thank you for your questions.

KDE e.V. represents the KDE Community in various ways--business,
financial, and legal. It does not govern or control technical matters.
KDE e.V. is a non-profit association.[1]

The KDE e.V. Board of Directors is an elected body that guides
implementation of KDE e.V. matters.[2]

Members of KDE e.V. are the legal participants in the non-profit
association, and are eligible to vote on the Board representatives.[3]

Active KDE contributors are encouraged to assist with guiding KDE e.V.
by becoming members. However, membership in KDE e.V. is not required
to contribute to KDE technically or in any of many other ways. The
KDE-community mailing list is intended to keep people informed whether
or not they are KDE e.V. members.
