A bit more than a year ago, the KDE community decided to focus on a few goals. One of those goals (the most important one as far as I’m concerned) is to increase the users’ control over their private data.

KDE developers and users have always been a privacy-minded bunch. But due to all the fun things that have happened in the recent years, we had to switch to the next gear.

We have seen new projects like KDE Itinerary (by Volker), Plasma Vault (by yours truly), Plasma Mycroft (by Yuri and Aditya), etc. There has also been a lot of work to improve our existing projects like KMail.

Now, this post is not about any of these.

It is about a KDE Privacy developer sprint organized by Sando Knauß.

The sprint will be held in Leipzig (Germany) from 22. 3. to 26. 3. and all privacy-minded contributors are invited to join.
