Web Hackers

Welcome! We are the GNOME web hackers team: we work on developing and improving GNOME's websites. See Team to see a list of current and past members.

How to Get Involved

Communication Channels

{i} One of the best ways to follow GNOME Web is to subscribe to the relevant wiki pages. You can do this by adding the following to your GNOME Live notification settings:



  • We have a list of tasks that you might want to start with, although you are also free to find tasks of your own.

  • Take a look at our tutorials on how to set up local copies of our websites.

  • Check the list of GNOME Websites and what's pending for them.

Contributing to the GNOME Website

www.gnome.org (wgo) is the main GNOME website, which includes a number of sub-areas, such as Friends of GNOME and the GNOME Foundation. The site is based on WordPress and there is plenty of work to do, so volunteers are greatly appreciated!

  • Content changes- See Gnome.org Accounts for a WP user account. You are also welcome to file bugs for corrections or improvements to existing content.

  • Adding Plugins - As the /wpcontent/plugins directory is not in the writable for security reasons, you need to find one of our SysAdmins in other to add any plugins to wgo. Ways to find a SysAdmin:

    • the #sysadmin or #engagement IRC channels
    • directly contact a SysAdmin (check /Sysadmin/Team).

    • You can also file a bug requesting the addition of the Plugin.

  • Website Bugs - You can find things that need doing to the site in the issue tracker, and you can file new bugs there too.

  • Contributing changes to wgo's theme - Set up a local copy of wgo. In order to make changes to the theme, submit patches as you would for any GNOME module

  • If you are new to Git, check out the Git for GNOME developers guide.
