On the 2nd of December, the Kdenlive team will be having a bug squash day in preparation for the major refactoring release due in April 2019. This is a great opportunity for interested developers to participate in the project. The team has triaged hundreds of reports, closing more than a hundred of them in the past month. We have also made a list of entry level bugs you can get started with. For the more seasoned developers, there areplenty of options – be it a shiny feature request or a challenge to polish some non-trivial edges. To hack Kdenlive you needto know C++, Qt, QML or KDE Frameworks.Those with knowledge of C can join the fun by improving MLT, the multimedia framework Kdenlive runs on. Those with no programming experience can join in testing fixes and features, as well as triaging more bug reports.
You can find the list of proposed bugs to solve in our workboard under “low hanging / junior jobs” section here.
