KDE SC 4.5 release parties – let’s get them started!

I’m back from conference touring (which was awesome btw – more about that later) and Tom reminded me that the release parties for 4.5 are not planned yet. And the release is planned for August 4th, so in a bit more than a week. OMG!

Clearly it is time to fix this situation and give the world a chance to meet some cool KDE people. So go to the 4.5 release party planning page and check if there is one near you already. If there is one then sign up for it and have fun. If there is none yet it’s time to start one. Pick a date and time (preferably within 3 weeks of release) and reserve a place in a local restaurant, bar, meeting room, university, whateverelsefits. Add it to the wiki page, spread the word and then have lots of fun.

Of course it’s my pleasure to announce the first of hopefully many release parties: Stuttgart, Germany on 7th of August. Exact place and time is still to be determined. Check the wiki page every now and then for updates.

For those who have never planned or attended a release party: You can do pretty much everything you want from simply getting together for a beer and chatting to full day event with talks, workshops and so on. It’s up to you. You can find a few tips on the community wiki. Everyone is welcome from active contributor to interested user. Just let the person organizing it know you’re coming so they can plan better.

I’d like to organise one, but when I try to register at community.kde.org, I get an

“Internal error

Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information.”

slapped into my face. :(

(and when I tried to submit this for the first time, with Akregator, I got a “file not found” error!)

Patrick: Meh! That’s not good. Please try again and if it still doesn’t work email me the details for your event and I’ll add it for you.

Nice to see that there will be a Release Party in Stuttgart again :-)
I’ll be there (and at the KDE Baden-Württemberg Sprint that will eventually take place).
Lots of “real life” KDE activity going on atm, I like that ;-)
