GNOME is a Free Software Open Source project and diverse international community of hundreds of contributors, many of whom are volunteers. Anyone can contribute to and participate in GNOME!

GNOME is designed and developed in the open. Most discussion occurs on public IRC channels. Software changes are reviewed and staged in Bugzilla. All of the source code is stored in git.

In order to keep everything running smoothly, everyone contributing to the project or participating in any way must abide by the Code of Conduct. While productive and respectful debates on topics are encouraged, the project reserves the right to limit anything deemed inappropriate or offensive.
