Getting Involved in GNOME Engagement


  • Welcome to the Engagement Team!

    This page will help you get started in the team. Whatever skills you have, there is always a way to help out. For more information about some of the activities we do, check out the Engagement guide below.

    GNOME Engagement

Quick Start Guide


  • Join the communication channels. Get to know the people you'll be working with! Sign up for the mailing list and chat channels so that you can talk to other people on the GNOME Engagement team. You can find information on how to do that directly below. If you're shy and don't feel comfortable making a general introduction for yourself, you might want to reach out to a mentor who can help you get started.

  • Sign up and request access to this wiki. Due to spam problems, we had to lock down the wiki. Since we use this wiki for a lot of our projects, you should sign up for an account and then get someone to add you to our trusted editors page so that you can start editing the wiki on your own. Check out our GitLab workboard to find tasks. Browse our Engagement GitLab workboard and look at the tasks and projects we are working on. Register for a GitLab account and message one of the project "masters" to get added. Even if you haven't been added to the team on GitLab, you can comment and contribute, so don't let that slow you down on getting started!

Involve & Communicate

  • IRC Channel

    Our IRC Channel it's the main place to communicate, and get involved with the Engagement Team, in the IRC Channel you can ask any questions you have, discuss and feel free to empower GNOME. Also, don't be afraid to say hi on IRC! :)

    Check out our IRC

  • Git Lab Board

    Access our Git Lab board and contribute, collaborate and help us to improve our work by contributing in tasks and projects that we're currently handling, or why not suggest new tasks and projects? Be social.

    Access the Board

  • Mailing List

    Our mailing list it's the center of notifications, news, announcements and notices of the Engagement Team. When you join the mailing list, it's a good idea to send an email introducing yourself to the community so people know who you are and what you're interested in.
