This page is a constant work in progress and provides an overview of who is doing what in the Tiki community. This is not a top-down directive or anything, but rather a collaborative list to enable all in the community to work more effectively together.

Many contributors might still be missing from this list... please help to make this page better!

1. Introduction

Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware is a vast project. It's tricky for new people to know how the Tiki Community is organized to find the right person to contact to start to contribute. Newcomers often ask:

  • What may I expect from others within Tiki Community
  • What do others expect from me?
  • Who does what?
  • Who should I talk to? How does it work?

This page is intended to help answer these question.

Important: Everyone is a volunteer. Things get done because someone like you decides to take the time to make it better.

Tiki is a free and open source software project. Anyone can join and participate in the Tiki Community without paying or officially joining anything — simply register.

If you are new to open source, a good place to learn more about how open source software communities work is to read about it on Wikipedia.
