The Trisquel Team

Although everyone who uses Trisquel GNU/Linux is a part of the Trisquel community, the work of maintaining and improving the project is mostly done by a small core group of individuals.

Bug Testing

Bug testers run comprehensive tests of pre-release (alpha, beta, and RC) versions of the distribution and file detailed issue reports. When bugs are found, the analogous version of Ubuntu is also tested to see if the bug can be duplicated upstream, and if so the issue is reported upstream to the Ubuntu project and to the maintainers of individual software packages.

The localisation team translates our abundant documentation and some other parts of the website from English to other languages. Fluency in the given language is a requirement.

Joining the Team

If you would like to be a member of the team, just contact Ruben on IRC or email.
Being an official member of the team requires more than just a general interest in the distro or occasionally giving feedback. Team members contribute some significant portion of their free time to the advancement of the project.
Every team member is expected to subscribe to and use the development mailing list and communicate on the #trisquel IRC channel on Libera.Chat regularly.
