you can certainly "barge in" and start coding. what you can't do is "barge in" and redesign everything the way you want just because you showed up one day. but the general barrier to entry in KDE is pretty amazingly low: show up and start coding.

we've had people that have come in and a few months later are working on core areas in KDE. true, these people tend to be talented and hard working.
