Il team di KDE ha rilasciato il suo Manifesto. The KDE Manifesto altro non è che una dichiarazione di intenti da parte della comunità del drago che racchiude lo spirito stesso di KDE nonché la sua mission.
Ma leggiamolo assieme

The KDE Manifesto

We are a community of technologists, designers, writers and advocates who work to ensure freedom for all people through our software.
Because of this work we have come to value:
Open Governance
to ensure engagement in our leadership and decision processes;
Free Software
to ensure the result of our work is available to all people;
to ensure that people of all origins are welcome to join us and participate;
to ensure that new ideas constantly emerge to better serve people;
Common Ownership
to ensure that we stay united;
End-User Focus
to ensure our work is useful to all people.

That is, in pursuit of our goal, we have found these items essential to define and stay true to ourselves.
