The IPFire Documentation Project

Who are we?

The IPFire Documentation Project takes care of several text parts of the distribution. Since this is a german project, a lot of users write new ideas and how-tos in german for the wiki. We try to translate them also to english cause people from other countries uses the english part as a template for other languages. So it would be a great support if people with other native languages (above all, english) should take part in the team.

Current coordinator: —

For help, discussions and organisation about this topic the Documentation mailinglist documentation@lists.ipfire.org (link to subscribe) are our platform.
