There are lots of ways to donate back to the LedgerSMB community, even if you can't write computer programs. If you are able to help out with the development, there's a page explaining how to get started.
There are a few other types of contributions we have immediate need for:
- Support the developers
If you're not able to contribute to the project by doing any of the activities below, please support the developers through our Bountysource Salt program for sponsoring developers, or influence the direction of development by putting a bounty on the bug you most want fixed
- Help others
If you have time to get involved in discussions on the mailing lists, IRC channel or other places, supporting other users with the workflows you have worked out to work for you, that just might help them get their challenges resolved quickly. Even just sending your testimonial could help others. Maybe they can help you next time!
- Provide feedback
Feedback does not need to be a bug report: if you like or dislike specific things, or you have a specific need, let us know through the mailing lists or Matrix! Alternatively, you could start a discussion on GitHub: Ideas for improvements go into the "Ideas" category.
- Bug reports
Please report your problems in the GitHub issue tracker or ask your questions in a GitHub Discussion (Q&A category).
Our translations are becoming outdated, and we need your help to get them back into shape.
- Release testing
Help preventing regressions by testing your processes with any release candidates announced on the mailing lists. If we catch regressions before a release, we can fix the problems and prevent problematic releases. Also, there are too many possible combinations of Perl, PostgreSQL, Apache, etc versions to test them all; just maybe, your combination is a problematic one. If so: we want to know about it before the release!
- Create a package for your O/S
You can help our market penetration by developing a package for your favorate distribution or operating system, if one isn't already available.
Below you'll find pages explaining the community processes involved in any of these.
