Welcome back again to the KDE Interview series. Today we feature Thomas McGuire, the KMail maintainer.

When and how did you get in contact with the KDE community?

I started programming by creating small games for Windows. One of them was using the SDL library, which is cross platform. I was curious to see if my game would work on Linux, so I installed SuSE to compile it there. The desktop happened to be KDE software, and I stayed with Linux and KDE applications since then.

In which part of the KDE community and in what development area(s) are you involved?

I mainly focus on KMail and KDEPIM. Occasionally I also commit something to kdelibs, when it is relevant for Kmail.

How did you become KMail maintainer?
