The heart of open source is the people who are participating in a community and it is no different in case of OpenStack either.
This chapter will guide you through of all the tools and processes that we are using to develop, test, maintain, and document the projects in OpenStack.
Communication is underrated, but crucial when it comes to participating in an open source community. We have several tools that we use for online and offline communication, which we encourage you to use.
We do not differentiate between the different types of contributions such as code or documentation therefore you will find guidance in this chapter for all types.
First-timers can refer to the Quick Start Guide.
