KDE.org: The People Behind KDE: Harri Porten

“What is your role within KDE?”

“Currently I’m condemned to get the JavaScript support up to par
with those “other” browsers. Besides that I still maintain the
Internet dialer kppp as good as I can without having a phone line
available right now.”

“How and when did you get involved in KDE?”

“I downloaded the first packages after reading that famous c’t
magazine article by Kalle Dalheimer. The first application I tried
out was kppp. As it wasn’t capable of dialing into my university’s
server back than I send my first patches to the author, Bernd
Wuebben. This turned out to be too impractical in the long run so I
got a CVS account and started to help out in other parts of the
project wherever needed.”

“How much time do you spend on KDE?”

“Too many many late hours on too many days a week.”
