How you can help Devuan

The love that's been coming Devuan's way has been great but it would be even better if that love transformed into more volunteers helping to improve every aspect of Devuan. Now that we're turning our attention to Ascii, there is certainly plenty to do!  Feedback is essential for Devuan to grow and prosper. Here are some ways you can help:

  • Report a bug - If you think you have found a bug in a Devuan package, please report it to http://bugs.devuan.org, either by using the reportbug tool or directly via email

  • Fix a bug - If you think you know how to fix an existing bug, please report the solution in the corresponding page on http://bugs.devuan.org, or, better, roll-up your sleeves, implement the fix, and get in touch with the development team on IRC (#devuan-dev on freenode) to have your patch included in the official repos

  • Share the love - If you would like a package to be included in Devuan, please consider joining the development team by taking charge of packaging and maintaining it. This documentation will guide you through the process: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=549

  • How can we improve? - If you have comments about the website and/or other public aspects of Devuan, please get in touch with jaromil or golinux

Devuan has a wishlist! As we grow, the need for community participation and hardware and financial support increases. Here are some suggestions that will help move us along:

  • Maintain a package - If you would like a package to be included in Devuan, please consider joining the development team by taking charge of packaging and maintaining it. This documentation will guide you through the process: <https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=549>

  • Donate a hosted machine (bare metal) - If you or your company can host a machine that we can use, with root access, as part of our online service infrastructure, we'd be very grateful. We plan to strenghten our online presence with a revamped core infrastructure plan between 2017 and 2018 so this is the time to step forward. We can well consider this as sponsorship.

  • Host a mirror - Have extra bandwidth?  Please consider hosting a mirror of Devuan images/repos. Get in touch with Devuan developers on IRC at #devuan-dev` on freenode to discuss details

  • Build a local community - Devuan encourages multi-lingual support and localized groups. Consider setting up additional support options on the dev1galaxy forum or an email list or IRC channel etc., in your native language. Here are some  suggestions to get you started: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1498#p1498

  • Translate language packs for FluxBB - This contribution would allow local communities to use the dev1galaxy.org forum in their native language.  So far Polish, Italian, Swedish and Croation are in process. See: <https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1528

  • Contribute RTFM stuff - Documentation and/or translations in any language are needed. Contributions could go into <https://git.devuan.org/groups/devuan-doc> or <https://dev1galaxy.org/viewforum.php?id=7>

  • Donate an ARM development board (50$-100$) (contact parazyd parazyd@dyne.org / #devuan-arm)

  • Donate an ARM or ARM64 build host (50$-200$) (contact parazyd parazyd@dyne.org / #devuan-arm)

  • Donate a MIPS board (50$-200$) (contact parazyd parazyd@dyne.org)

  • Donate PowerPC/Sparc hardware for build/development (contact devs on #devuan-dev)

  • Or you can always make a one-time or recurring donation of any amount. Please visit: https://devuan.org/os/donate where we just updated the financial reports for 2015 and 2016,
