We've recently had a group working on trying to improve KDE <> distro
relationships by improving communication. Yes, there is the packager
list and release-team, but they are about the nitty-gritty of released
packages. So the Distribution Outreach Program has asked for the
Distributions list [1] to be created, where larger issues like these
can be hashed out. All interested KDE people and all interested
distribution people are invited to participate, no matter what your

The KDE community wants KDE software to work well everywhere. And the
wonderful people working to distribute KDE software want it to work
well in each of our distros. Together we can make magic happen.
