Onboarding:
Some projects started actively engaging with this goal, currently
focused at attracting new devs which is a great starting point.
* PlasmaMobile
** Implemented a dedicated webpage with an interactive guide on
getting involved: https://www.plasma-mobile.org/findyourway/
** Working on a guide to setting up a development environment
https://community.kde.org/Plasma/Mobile/DevGuide
** Identifying junior jobs and revamping the descriptions of
phabricator tasks to make them friendly for newcomers by including
relevant useful details such as: short and to the point description,
suggested skill requirements, links to related technical resources.
(Example task https://phabricator.kde.org/T6945)
** Brainstorming the idea of having a dedicated application/widget
that helps newcomers initiating their first commit:
https://phabricator.kde.org/T8685
* KDEConnect

** Blog post https://nicolasfella.wordpress.com/2018/05/13/kde-connect-junior-jobs/
