Spreadkde needs you!

"Spreadkde needs your help. We are looking for enthusiastic Web Developers looking to participate in the future of Spreadkde. Even better if you had past experience with Drupal! Recently Spreadkde, has been needing some love and care on the development side to fully enhance this great system.

We don't need just Web Developers help, but we need help from anyone actively involved in the KDE promotion team. We aren't just building Spreadkde for fun, we are doing it to make life easier for KDE promoters, by organising material, information, resources and possibly bringing a community together in one place. We would like to know what you want included in Spreadkde, this will allow us to prioritise what is needed to make Spreadkde a part of the day to day life of a KDE promoter.

All of this discussion will take place on IRC #kde-promo tommorow, between 6:00pm to 8:00pm GMT time. This gives every one the oppurtunity to develop Spreadkde's future.

I personally hope we can get Spreadkde on the path to a prosperous future."
