Un proxecto de éxito precisa moita xente para xogar moitos roles diferentes. Algúns membros escriben código e documentación, mentres que outros son valiosos como probadores, enviando amaños e suxestións.

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.
