A successful project requires many people to play many different roles. Some members write code or documentation, while others are valuable as testers, submitting patches and suggestions.
The number of Contributors to the project is unbounded. Get involved today. All contributions (adding code or documentation, fixing typo error, reporting issues…) to the project are greatly appreciated.
These individuals are recognised as Contributors to the main code github repository.
Follow the lists of maintainers of the documentation and the website. Feel free to join any of those teams.
