KDE Telepathy Hack Day

Just a reminder that today is a “get helping KDE Telepathy” hacking day.

I’ll be in our IRC channel #kde-telepathy all day to help people get started on working on our accounts manager.

If you’re interested in helping out with instant messaging and collaboration on KDE now would be a great time to get involved. Anyone with basic C++ skills will be able to help.

A list of the tasks we want to get done is here: http://community.kde.org/index.php?title=Real-Time_Communication_and_Collaboration/Components/Accounts_KCM_Tasks

Along with some further information about getting started here:

Telepathy Help Hacking Day – Saturday 8th Jan

KDE Telepathy has quite a lot of work left to do, so I’m running a day to get more people involved and help hacking. I intend to focus purely on the System Settings module where people set up their IM accounts.

The interface needs a lot of UI attention and tidying up so we need people of all skills and interests.

Each protocol (MSN/Yahoo/etc) needs it’s own user interface, this is a fairly straightforward task, but there are a lot of protocols Telepathy supports!

On Saturday join us in #kde-telepathy on freenode we’ll help make sure you’re set up with the current source, and you can get hacking! Hopefully we can get the entire system settings module nearly finished by the end of the weekend.

Below are some screenshots of the current state (which aren’t much to look at) hopefully this time next week I’ll be posting something much nicer.
