Introduction

This website belongs to members wanting to give a little something to the free software community.

Since Linus Torvalds launched Linux (1991) there has been a mutual feeling to give something to the free software community. When receiving a gift or there is an opportunity to help without cost of sources, there is that natural tendency to give in return.

To contribute free software community requires basic knowledge/skill in software development and an Internet access to certain sources. These few things may stop a user. We are here to help as long as its within our capacity. With some help and learning the basic you can start contibuting.

You can contribute in different way; in the form of ideas, start a project, or simply collaborate on user contributed works. But most important is to remember you don't need to be a "professional" developer as long as there is an interest to learn. Become an eudev (end user developer) by working together with like-minded members.

User-contributions.org is still new, don't expect too much. But there are already available for you to join a project discussion forum and wiki.

This is obviously to ensure that the free software community will actually benefit from our efforts. Everyone is still free to have his/her own type of "open license", as long as the community in-tress is kept.
