OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

As a very satisfied user of KDE I would like to say "thanks" by becoming a supporting member of KDE e.V. but currently it is not too easy and there are no cheaper options for students like me who have little or no income. You should work on building something like this http://www.gnome.org/friends/.

I would adopt one of you :-)

Here's how you become a kde-env member, build a dev. environment for KDE and start coding, or fixing bugs like I am currently doing. After you have done enough of it and know a lot of people then apply for kde membership. That's another way to help kde, you don't have to donate financially, maintaining kde is another big task.

Sorry, Vikram you are doing good work but in this case I have to disagree. This is what the individual supporting membership is about.

Gabriel should be able to learn at community.kde.org how to support KDE. However, this is obviously not clear enough.

@ tstaerk
My apologies, should have looked close, I understand that the process of becoming a supporter isn't clear enough on the website, hope to get it done in this release cycle.
