Working together is more fun. A lot of important work is done with writing little or no code. Yes, that means non-coders are more than welcome to contribute to the DokuWiki comunity!
Teams are groups of people that create and maintain the various aspects of DokuWiki and its resources. If you'd like to help with DokuWiki, teams are the right way to start. Each team has different tasks and responsibilities in the Dokuwiki projects. This page links to all team pages.
Before you start off, you might want to read about
Joining a Team
To join a team, have a look at the list of teams below and find the one (or more) that matches your interests and skills best. Edit that team's page and add your name and some info about you to the list of members. You could also subscribe to changes to that page.
Now join the DokuWiki Teams Mailing List. All teams organize via the DokuWiki Teams Mailing List. By sharing a communication channel between all teams, we make sure teams can easily interact with each other. The mailing list is also the best place to get in contact with a certain team.
You're now a member of the a DokuWiki team and thus a member of the DokuWiki Open Source project. Welcome
Next is to start working. Some teams maintain a list of current tasks on their team pages – have a look at them. But before you jump right into working, it's recommended to talk to them first . Just write a short mail to the mailing list, introduce yourself and tell your team mates what you'd like to work on.
These teams are already working on tasks and could use some help.
