How to Contribute

Xfce is developed by a small group of hard-working volunteers. There are many ways in which you can contribute to Xfce, all of which are most welcome!


There are different ways in which you can contribute to xfce:

  • Translation – Translate Xfce applications into different languages
  • Documentation – add or translate application manuals on this website
  • Bugs – report or fix Xfce bugs, provide new features
  • Bountysource - Put some money on bugs you want to have fixed
    • team_team_id_849_style_raised_.jpg - it is as well possible to put a general donation

Once you did some contributions, you may want to grab extra permissions to e.g. release your modifications:

Xfce API documentation can be found in the Xfce development Wiki

Get in Touch

Before starting contribution it may make sense to get in contact with some xfce experts:

  • via IRC: Join #xfce and #xfce-dev on Freenode
  • via some Xfce mailing list - first check if the list is still active !

It as well might help to check the current roadmap in the Xfce development Wiki in order to get an overview on ongoing development.
