Warning.png Work in Progress:
This page is a Work in Progress. The contents off this page may be in flux, please have a look at this page history the to see list of changes.

Here you can find those members of our community who are actively involved in the SME Server Project. If you need to know who is an administrator (documentation, forum, translation) or a committer in order to push an rpm to sourceforge CVS or edit a protected page on the wiki, you are in the right place. However, if you want to contact them, the best way is to raise a bug in bugzilla, against the concerned package, the documentation page, or your language translation.

Information.png Tip:
In consideration of the limited number of people and their limited free time, which they give freely, please be precise, polite, and concise; the project only exists by virtue of their work, and other peoples' time and resources freely given. Thanks a lot for their work!

You should read the page on volunteering in order to understand how you can become involved, no matter how much or little, in helping the community and these pages to develop around a Development Framework. We hope that you are able to find your place amongs us, do not hesitate to direct your questions to the Forums.

Wiki Admin

This page is built with MediaWiki. The concept of a Wiki is that anybody may add and modify content. On Help:Contents, find a quick tutorial if you're unfamiliar with wikis. As long as you edit anything on the wiki you are de facto member of the Wiki Team, but whenever you want to modify the manual or any protected pages of this wiki, you have to raise a bug against the documentation and explain what you want to modify.

Here are those people who have the right to apply your changes to the documentation area.

  • Miachael Mccarn (Mmccarn)
  • Stephen Nobles (Dungog)
