  • Q: I'd like to participate. How do I begin?

    • 1

      You don't need to be a developper to contribute, you may also contribute in terms of content production (translate TAO, create some tests or questions into TAO) or simply post new feature requests.

      The team is using a forge available at forge.tao.lu where all bug and new feature requests are posted.

      We are also using a wiki for the documentation and with a special topic on "How to contribute" .

      There is also a website from which you may get general information about the platform. Please visit www.tao.lu

      The application may be downloaded from the website or from our svn (available on the forge)

      Translating TAO is achieved through the editing of vocabulary files that are using the po format(text) and don't require PHP skills.

      • Tip:

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        We need people to download version 0.4.5 and make sure the frobulator still frobulates correctly.

  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

    • [X]
      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with TAO that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

    • [X]
      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
