Indeed, I would recommend working with them on a plan to make sure your
changes are mergeable and eventually merged into the main repo. If that
doesn't end up happening, all your hard work will have been wasted.

The rules also require using deprecated features of the Qt framework like Q_FOREACH. I understand the care of the community not to spoil anything and to preserve the beauty of the existing code. This means, radical changes should be done in a form.
>> I tried to setup the project on KDE myself (https://invent.kde.org/bourumir/kreed) but for some reason was not able to push Krita code (about 1 Gb) into repository - hangs at the end of the push. It may have something to do with quotas or things the like. It may be that I need more assistance from your side to setup the project. I decided to contact you first before starting the work on GitHub or independent server instead.
>> I, the project initiator, am currently 54 year old. I am robotic engineer with very long programming experience, including significant industrial experience with C++. In the past I made notable contribution to GNU Classpath project, providing them a fully functional and interoperable implementation of CORBA. It is obviously sad there are no other contributors so far but I expect some people to come. I also made several contributions for Krita so have some understanding about code base and architecture of this project. My real name is Audrius Meskauskas.
