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