FreedomBox looking for contributors
FreedomBox, a Debian pure blend to build a user-friendly, privacy-oriented home server, is looking for new contributors. Our recent success in launching a commercial FreedomBox product with Olimex has led to an influx in feedback about our software and, consequently, more development work to be done. Though we can currently handle urgent development matters, FreedomBox has many wish-list items which our small team can't always make time for. We need help from our friends in Debian!
Although there are only a few bugs open in BTS, there are over 300 listed in the Salsa issue tracker. It may be useful to look in one of the following labels:
- Help Wanted
- ready for implementation
If you have any questions about an issue, feel free to comment on it, or discuss with us on #freedombox-dev. We also discuss development ideas on our forum in the "Development" category.
