Participating in the community

The community exists mainly through mailing lists and a Subversion repository. To participate:

Go to and join the “mirrorbrain”, “mirrorbrain-commits”, and “mirrorbrain-announce” mailing lists. The dev list, “mirrorbrain”, is where almost all discussion takes place. All development questions should go there, though you might want to check the list archives first. The “mirrorbrain-commits” list receives automated commit emails.

Get a copy of the latest development sources from New development always takes place on trunk. Bugfixes, enhancements, and new features might be backported from there to the various release branches.

How to work on the documentation is described in How to improve this documentation.
