THE INTERVIEW

In what ways do you make a contribution to KDE?

In my spare time I'm currently working on Akonadi, the next-generation PIM data management framework. I also maintain KNode, KDE's news reader and try to keep an eye on KMime, KDE's MIME handling library.

At work I'm adding various features to Kontact, with KMail being the most prominent victim.
