How can I contribute?

Hello everyone,

I just recently made the switch to Arch (from an Ubuntu / Mint background) and I'm loving every minute of it. I was a little intimidated before, but now that I've actually made the attempt (and succeeded!) at building Arch, I can't believe how easy, fun and informative (and a little frustrating) it's been.

With that in mind, and knowing that Arch doesn't have the sheer number of people as Ubuntu, and is community driven, how can I help contribute to the project? I have absolutely no coding knowledge, but I can follow directions and like to learn.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the forums.  One of the main strengths of arch is it's documentation - the wiki in particular.  Many questions you will come up with are already answered there.  This one is linked on the front page of the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Getting_Involved

Straight from one of Arch's devs:  http://allanmcrae.com/2013/05/ways-to-c … rch-linux/

Enjoy and thank you for your contribution.  big_smile


I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror.  --Awebb
