Before you contribute
A few things to keep in mind before you contribute to our documentation:
- We expect all members to adhere to our Code of Conduct, so make sure you read through that.
- We use Markdown Syntax, so if you’re not familiar with that, you can read more about it here.
- Remember to update documentation carefully, and that your name is tied to contributions made by you. Please remember the goal is to help other users so be clear, concise, and accurate in your documentation.
- Also remember that abuse of your power will result in banning from the SourceForge.net site. We have little tolerance for spammers or inappropriate posters.
- Any authenticated (ie., logged in) SourceForge member is able to edit existing docs and create new docs.
Joining our team is easy!

Don't know what to write about?
You want to help, but don't know where to start? Check our community docs tickets to see where we can use some help:
- Suggestions for new documentation - these are pages that we see a need for, but haven't been written yet.
- Documentation needing improvement - these are docs that could use some attention. They may need some grammar cleanup, reviewing for accuracy, more info, etc.
Any questions? Let us know!
