Hi Alexander,
I'm the Analitza and KAlgebra maintainer in KDE Edu, I'm happy to see your
interest in our project. You're welcome to join the KDE family, and
therefore KDE Edu. Belonging to KDE only depends on the project being able
to live in the premises of the KDE Manifesto [1], which seems to me like it
does. The biggest change will be moving the project from sourceforge to, but I'd say this will bring some benefits you can take advantage

Furthermore, the fact that the project is part of KDE Edu is, at the
moment, depending on the goal of wanting to improve the available tools for

Regarding development, I can't really tell about kmplot, but it has barely
been developed during the last years. Maybe you can take a look at
KAlgebra/Khipu and see if there's any way we can work together though.

I hope we'll see you around!
