Yes, working fine.

Noticed that documentation summary for systemd-sysv is not correct. Removing it causes kernel panic.

Linuxfest NW was great! Met quite a few happy, satisfied KDE users while we ran the Ubuntu table.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate. Gathering with family and/or friends, eating good food, sharing love -- what's not to like?

8 reasons to donate to the KDE Sprints 2015 fundraising campaign

#2 - You'll help create a supportive atmosphere for new contributors to KDE

Most of the time, free software contribution is done by volunteers who work remotely and communicate with other contributors over the Internet. A lot of KDE development work is accomplished that way. However, there is a remarkable boost in productivity, cooperation, overcoming of barriers and synergistic decision making when developers are brought together for in-person meetings (sprints). Sprints are a catalyst for hard and focused work. They help to build friendships, strengthen motivation, and bring together more experienced contributors. Sprints also encourage participation from new people who are committed to free software excellence, people with technical skills and fresh ideas. Yes, you can help to make all of this happen!
