I am one of those new contributors that I would like to help... :)
It might be a very good thing a "per distribution" way to build plasma's
master branch and install it on a user's path (not global in order to
not break the distribution's official packages)...
For example an analytic guide for some of the most used distributions,
Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE etc.
I am using openSUSE and I would love to have a walk through to follow
for the first steps...

<Sho_> mgraesslin: the interesting thing is that among the best and

users - e.g. in the Rust community quite a few use Plasma, because C++
is the next best thing - but we don't publish anything they like to
read so we don't convert
it's kind of a pipe dream, but indeed, great documentation would be one of the
most effective things
