Here is a list of the articles that we should be maintaining, they are color coded to help identify weak articles.

Color Key[edit]

This is a quick key to help show what each color means for each article.

Color Description
Green Article is of good quality and does not need much improvement.
Yellow Article is good but could still be improved.
Red Article needs a lot of improvement.
Blue Article has not yet been written.

The ratings have been drawn up based on my quick scan through each article and are most likely flawed, feel free to change them if you disagree

KDE Platform 4[edit]

These are currently in heavy development and change rapidly, their articles should be updated as new information becomes available. For this reason, the articles should not be judged as critically as other articles and needn't be as long, I do think however the green rating should be used sparingly as at the moment none of the articles are good enough and they tend to need constant updates as development furthers.

Article Description
Decibel Communication framework, telepathy + Tapioca I believe
Dolphin New file manager, replaces Konqueror for file managing
NEPOMUK-KDE Compliments Strigi, allows tagging of files with more information
Okular Document viewer, will replace KPDF, KGhostView, KFax, KFaxview and KDVI.
