Before we begin…


In GNOME we use IRC to hang out together and mailing lists. In the #newcomers chatroom and the newcomers mailing list you can ask questions while following this guide.


  • Patience is your friend.
    It can take time before a fellow contributor can help you. Please provide as much information as possible about your problem and don’t message via private messages—you can use the #newcomers channel.


  • Be respectful.
    We are like a big family of all kind of cultures and backgrounds. We want a safe and comfortable community for all so you will feel like at home.


  • Take the initiative and be self-driven.
    GNOME contributors find and decide to work on tasks on their own. GNOME is driven by people like you who takes the initiative and create awesome things!
