How to Contribute

Want to help make Roundcube the best webmail solution ever? Roundcube is developed and licensed under the Gnu GPL open source license. Our developers and contributors are all volunteers and we're always looking for new additions and resources.

The Roundcube development mailing list is the place where ongoing development is discussed. This mailing list is not a support forum, and requests for help with non-development related problems will not be answered there. Thanks for keeping the list on-topic and productive!

Reporting bugs

Be sure that we test the code before we release it. However, you might find something that isn't right. To report bugs please use our tracking system but read these instructions before opening a new ticket. And remember: the more information we get the easier we can reproduce and fix it.

In order to start translating, you have to become a member of the translation team for your language. To do so, choose your language from the list and then click "Join team" on the upper right part of the overview page. You're request will be proceeded as fast as possible.

Documentation

Did you want to know how to do something and find that the documentation didn't explain it or didn't explain it well? We're happy to accept additions to the documentation; simply create a ticket with the text and either a link to the existing page or a request for a new page.
