Explicitly taking a political stance, are we? Are those that don't share it still welcome?

Hi, Jonathan! Thanks for the news, although the flag that the dragons show in that picture is a political one far from the idea of KDE, an European Union, and working together.

It's good to see that dragons also like political freedom ;)

It's a shame to use politics in the world of free software. Can someone, please, explain me why do appears an independentist Catalonian flag in the blog entry about a kde meeting. Do you realize that other kde users/programmers (even from Catalonia) can feel really offended seen the kde project involved in the politic situation of Catalonia.

I find the kde people who organize that event in Barcelona are doing quite wrong using their politics opinions shown with the flag (their opinions could be respectable but not using kde as a medium to spread that) as a logo for a software meeting. Does that mean that other spanish people that doesn't want the independence of Catalonia are not welcome to go to that meeting? Does that mean that people that doesn't have the same opinion can't work with them in kde? Does that mean that people doesn't want to colaborate with other kde developers from the rest of spain that don't think like them?

Do you realize that flag hurts kde and the free software world by associating just software with politics?

It is really sad to me (and i suppose a lot of people from Spain) see that image associated to kde.

It's really sad to see KDE mixed with a pro-independence movement. That flag isn't the official flag of Catalonia.

Someone is taking advance of KDE. Please keep KDE outside politics.

That's one politically-controversial flag you got there :p

Is kde supporting the independence of Catalonia?
