KDE --
A KDE Advisory Board has been formed by KDE e.V. to provide greater insight and cooperation around this free software desktop environment.

From the organization's announcement today, "The KDE e.V. Advisory Board provides a space for organizations to support KDE e.V. by giving feedback on KDE's activities and decisions. Furthermore, it is a channel to facilitate communication between KDE and the organisations on the Advisory Board."

Initial members of the KDE Advisory Board include Canonical, Blue Systems, the Open Source Initiative, FOSS Nigeria, FSF Europe, SUSE, April, The Document Foundation, LiMux, and the Free Software Foundation.

Organizations can join the KDE Advisory Board by either being invited by the KDE e.V. board or becoming a KDE e.V. Patron. Patron companies pay between 5,000 and 10,000 EUR per year to KDE e.V.

This is similar to GNOME's Advisory Board. Those wishing to learn more can read today's announcement at dot.kde.org.
