Now the statistics of the kate.git are online for public viewing.
They will be updated daily, located on: http://kate-editor.org/stats/
Unfortunately, the statistics of the last years are not that “representative”, as the moves of Kate around in SVN and to Git biased the statistics, as I did a lot of the commits for syncing and moving and so on.
Still it is amazing how MANY people did contribute during Kate’s history! (see Kate Authors)
A big THANK YOU to all contributors that appear there (and all the people that provided patches others merged in, did the testing, bug reporting, translations, …).
(And thanks to the authors of git_stats.)
The project plugin in kate.git master has now the ability to call cppcheck.
This is just hacked in at the moment and needs more love, but it works.
Feel free to contribute integration of other code checkers, cppcheck is only the first, I hope
The Kate/KDevelop sprint in Vienna was a really productive time.
Thanks to Joseph Wenninger for organizing it and the KDE e.V. for the additional funding!
The Kate team was able to really wade through a lot of bugs & wishes and fix/invalidate a lot of them.
After some more days of work, this really is visible in our nice bug chart
Kate, KatePart & KWrite are now down to a bug level as low as years ago
Still, there is a lot to do.
If you have some spare time and Qt/KDE knowledge, please help us to have an even better KDE 4.10 release and look at the remaining bugs.
We have the following ~60 bugs and ~330 wishes still around. They vary from small stuff to “a lot” of work. If you want to help out, just pick the bug you want to work on and assign it
During our long bug hunting and fixing sprint I came along some nasty BiDi or Unicode related bugs.
I and most others in the Kate team are not really able to fix such issues We lack both the knowledge of the underlying techniques and are not able to write/read any language that really uses complex unicode chars or BiDi text.
Therefore: If you know Qt and you want to help out with fixing BiDi/Unicode related bugs, please provide patches for them in the KDE Bugzilla!
Here are the relevant bugs:
Any help here is highly appreciated! If you have questions about the internals of KatePart needed to fix such an issue, just ask in the bug or firstname.lastname@example.org.
