PC-BSD® is more than a cool operating system. It is a community of users, where each user is welcome to contribute their talents in order to constantly improve PC-BSD® and the PC-BSD® computing experience. The Handbook has many ideas to get you started in contributing to the PC-BSD® community.

If you are looking for more specific ideas, here is a categorized list of open tasks that need your help.

Documentation

  • review Handbook for typos, grammos, unclear sections, and fix as needed

Translation

  • review the Overall Completion column at the PC-BSD® localization site to see if your language is fully translated; if not, help to translate the outstanding pages and review the translations that are pending review
  • assist in translation of other PC-BSD® websites

Software

Code

  • create hardware probe script that sends info about unsupported hardware to a centralized database
  • create device auto-probe tool which checks for any driver-less PCI devices and tries to locate and load correct module for that particular ID; may require knowledge of C

Quality Assurance

  • install and use one of the desktop environments supported in 9.0 and report any bugs to the appropriate testing forum

  • datamine forums to see which questions remain unanswered in the Handbook or FAQs

Training

  • create videos demonstrating how to perform common tasks on PC-BSD®
