If you want to help to bring more stuff KDE develops on Windows, we have some meta Phabricator task were you can show up and tell for which parts you want to do work on.
A guide how to submit stuff later can be found on our blog.
Thanks to all the people that help out with submissions & updates & fixes!
If you encounter issues on Windows and are a developer that wants to help out, all KDE projects really appreciate patches for Windows related issues.
Just contact the developer team of the corresponding application and help us to make the experience better on any operating system.
