I'm just relaying what usually happens when I get a newcomer in #krita.

Well, I find the page not very penetrable, to the point that I don't
get the proposed workflow, but that might just be me, or the prose, which
certainly needs editing.
But I'm the wrong person to ask in any case. What you should do is hang
out on #kde-devel and the next time someone comes on the channel who says,
"Hello! I'm new here. I want to develop on KDE. What do I need to do?",
grab him and ask them to go through this process, and make notes whenever
they get confused.
