KDE Brainstorm Monthly Digest - issue 1

Filed under
KDE

Hello, and welcome to the first “issue” of the KDE Brainstorm monthly digest.

First of all, a few words of introduction. There are quite a number of ideas being posted on the KDE Brainstorm, and it would be nice to know how the initiative is faring, and important highlights, like what ideas are more popular, which are more controversial, etc. That is why the idea of a monthly digest was born (in a similar fashion as the fabolous Commit Digest). Our idea is to publish these digests monthly, providing the community (and perhaps even developers) with useful information about the state of the initiative.

Issue 1 - March 23th - April 25th, 2009

Statistics
Let’s start by taking a look at the initiative as a whole. 323 valid ideas have been submitted in the last month, an average of 10.77 ideas per day. Quite a nice result, overall, especially knowing that non-valid ideas have been rather low, on that regard. Specifically, the staff has reported 15 invalid ideas, 28 duplicate ideas, 33 which were actually already implemented, 3 that were not ideas (more like bugs), and two rejected ideas.
