Giving back to the KDE Community

Hey guys

Kubuntu aims to be *the* most vanilla KDE distribution. Most Kubuntu
members have close ties to KDE, and many are even KDE e.V members. We
all collectively care a lot about KDE.

One of the ways KDE improves it software is by enabling the developers
to communicate in person. This is done via sprints, and via the yearly
conference of Akademy. Kubuntu has always played a vital part in this
conference and sometimes hosts a special Kubuntu day as well.

Given this close relationship between us, and how Kubuntu clearly
wants KDE to succeed. Perhaps some of the donations Kubuntu receives
could be upstreamed to KDE. Kubuntu obviously has its own costs, but
perhaps a certain part of your spare budget could be allocated to KDE.

One simple way of doing this could be by becoming a sponsor for
Akademy. It would increase Kubuntu's already massive popularity, and
I'm sure the KDE Developers would quite appreciate it, and reserve a
cozy place in theirs hearts cause of that.

Looking forward to hearing from you guys.

PS: I decided to send this e-mail after discussing this with the
Kubuntu Council members Rohan, Jonathan and Harold.
