How to contribute
gEDA is run by volunteers, so these are volunteer (read: unpaid) tasks. Please consider helping out. Thank you.
Have you created your own symbols, footprints or tools for use with gEDA? Maybe you want to upload them to gedasymbols.org
and share them with the community.
Website and documentation
This wiki section of the gEDA website is dedicated to documentation that is contributed by a multitude of authors, including users. In particular, it should grow into a resource of information for those who just started to work with the tools.
Somebody is needed to act as an editor for the gEDA documentation effort. Basically this person would take whatever documentation already exists and/or is currently being written and formats it into something presentable. This individual does not write the actual documentation, but would instead perform editorial work. People who want to write the actual documentation are also needed. (See below how to get started editing the documentation on the wiki).
Somebody to watch over the mirrors and maybe do some HTML
hacking is needed. There are currently three websites which need to be monitored and occasionally fixed. The person would also have influence in the changing/expansion of the gEDA website. Duties would be split among the current webmasters.
Anyone is welcome to contribute to the website. Unlike Wikipedia there is no button to create
a login by yourself. This is because nobody at the gEDA site has the nerves to
deal with anonymous vandalism. Consequently, you have to write an email to the
site admin (dj AT delorie.com) to gain access. In your e-mail to the wiki
site admin, please indicate that you have read and agree to follow the
gEDA Project's Code of
Conduct. You should subscribe to and participate in some discussion on the
geda-user mailing list before requesting a wiki account.
