           Summary: Redundant Page About Helping
           Product: www.kde.org
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: webmaster at kde.org
        ReportedBy: WinterWolf at myway.com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.1.3)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:          Linux

On the main KDE website in the Inform section there is a link called supporting KDE http://kde.org/support/. Here, it lists many ways to help th KDE project: 

[ Linking | Money | Material | Sponsoring ]

[ Artwork & Icons | Enterprise Reports | Usability Studies ]

[ KDE News | KDE Traffic | Promotion | Bug Hunting | Documentation | Translation ]

[ Patches | Code | Maintainance ] 

Now the problem is that there is another section on the KDE website called Communicate in which there is a link to a page called Helping Out http://kde.org/helping/. This is essentially a dumbed down version of the Supporting KDE page http://kde.org/support/ listing only these ways to contribute:

[ Code | Money | Artwork/Icons | Documentation/Translation | Other/Misc ]

which were already included in the Supporting KDE page. Now I believe it is ok to have the same type of information in 2 areas, but why not list all the ways to help KDE in both areas.

BTW: CVS - DIGEST was not mentioned in the participating section of http://kde.org/support/
