F2. How can I get involved in the Facsimile project?

Participation in the Facsimile project is both welcomed and encouraged!

You can get involved in a number of ways, depending upon how much time you can spare and how much experience and expertise you have to offer. At its simplest, you can get involved by using Facsimile and reporting your feedback (such as filing bug reports or enhancement requests). At the other end of the spectrum, you may wish to become a developer and work on the Facsimile code base, implementing new features and fixing bugs. Or you could volunteer to help out with the web-site, graphic design, documentation, testing, user support - in short, whatever you may feel comfortable with.

Note that if you wish to become a developer, you will need to have an account on GitHub, as well as on this site.
