 That said, please only apply for an account only if you think that you will work on Xfce for a somewhat longer time. If you know that you will only work for a couple of weeks and then never again, please consider not applying for an Xfce account but instead continue to put patches in the [[contribute:​bugs:​|bug tracker]]. That said, please only apply for an account only if you think that you will work on Xfce for a somewhat longer time.

-We also value if you show you work or patches ​before applying, so we have at least a bit of understanding what you're capable of and if the idea fits in the Xfce philosophy.+You can first publish your code on Gitlab.com, Github.com or whatever platform to show what you have done before applying ​for an official ​Xfce account.
  
 The limitations are not there to exclude anyone -- they are there to ensure that the maintenance of accounts remains reasonable. Of course, to be clear: the Xfce sysadmins have the last word about whether or not to create an account for somebody. ​ The limitations are not there to exclude anyone -- they are there to ensure that the maintenance of accounts remains reasonable.

-Now you are ready to apply for for an Xfce contributor account. When you register, you will need to enter your name and an e-mail address, which has to be your own. Of course, do not forget that this __email address becomes public__ (at least through Git) so you will unfortunately get some spam as a result. 
- 
- 
-  - Send a mail to [[accounts@xfce.org]] containing the following information:​ 
-    - Your full name 
-    - Permanent email address 
-    - Requested account name ((lowercase letters a-z, the name should also be easily connectable to the full name, try to avoid nick-names)) 
-    - Explanation why you think you should get an account (in English please) 
-    - Attach (do not paste inline!) the public part of your passphrase protected SSH version 2 key pair (usually ''​~/​.ssh/​id_rsa.pub''​ or ''​~/​.ssh/​id_dsa.pub''​). Only attach one key, you can add more keys later [[contribute:​dev:​git:​start#​adding_and_removing_private_keys|yourself]]. 
-  - The sysadmin with reply to the email (this might take a couple of days).
