Hi Carl,

Thank you for the response!

To be honest, I'm not yet completely sure on how to proceed with this. They
may look like duplicates but they also do address different groups and

1. https://kde.org/develop - This should probably  be *the* hub for
developers, whether or not they are contributors (internal) or external. I
see it as a simple landing page for directing them to the proper channels
or pages, be it TechBase, Community Wiki, etc.
2. https://kde.org/products/frameworks/ - This is more of an advertisement
of Frameworks as a KDE product vis-a-vis Plasma and Applications. Content
here leans more towards marketing really, like a brochure. Not much
technical content.
3. https://techbase.kde.org/Welcome_to_KDE_TechBase - This is pretty much
the documentation material for external developers. It may have some
duplicated material from 1 but the tone is more for those not too familiar
with the KDE community.

We definitely need to clean them up and organize things but I'm not sure if
merging them would be a good idea either.

Could it help to create a Season of KDE task for the documentation? I saw a

There was an attempt to join the Summer of Documentation earlier this year
but we kinda came in too late to organize it. If there is another one next
year, perhaps we can join that.
