Crowdsourcing the KDE Web Site

The KDE Project is taking a smart approach to reworking the KDE Website. Lydia Pintscher put out the call Sunday for contributors to pitch in with content and screenshots for one or more KDE programs by January 23rd.

KDE apps are broken down into three batches on the wiki. Contributors are asked to pick one (or more) apps and submit a screenshot, and basic information about a project such as its homepage, features, IRC channels, and so forth.

Maintaining a major Web site can be a lot of work, and this is one way to take some of the heavy lifting off the major contributors. Producing a single page is not too difficult, but the cumulative effort is quite a bit if only done by a few contributors.
