Hello kdeveleop-developers,

I'm an electronic engineering student form Austria and I like to apply for
kdevelop on GSoC. I am using kdevelop as my preferred development
environment for C and so I would like to help you improving kdevelop at
GSoc. I have a lot of experience with Qt/C++, KDE and Linux and I am also
OpenSUSE ambassador for Austria. As you can see, I'm not new to the open
source community. If you like to see my current Qt project visit:

I like your GSoC ideas for kdevelop, but I have following to add: When I
developed PhyxCalc I came to one point, where I had to deploy my
application for several Linux desktops. As I am a OpenSUSE user, I knew the
Open Build Service very well. So I deployed my application via the build
service, however, it was quite a pain to get everything working. New
developers, especially developers coming from Windows, might be deterred of
the deployment of applications on Linux (without the build service it is
even more a pain). So I found this on the internet: This plugin is not developed
any more (and wasn't finished anyway), but I think it would be nice if
kdevelop would have such a plugin. Especially for small projects this would
be perfect, it would make deploying applications for Linux easy (and even
improve the success of the open source community).
