SmartWeb, like any other opensource project, relies heavily on the efforts of the entire user community to be ever vigilent for improvements, logging of defects, communicating use-cases, generating documentation, and being wary of other users in need. This is a quick guide outlining what members of the SmartWeb community may do to make the framework work better for everyone.
There is already a comprehensive Guide to Helping With SmartWeb. That guide focuses upon beginning as a supporter, with information on how to help the coding effort.
Documentation is currently a very high priority for the SmartWeb community. Please help out where ever you can, specifically in the work-in-progress Wiki.
Just as any other healthy project requires a quick turn-around on defects, and a transparent method of users to have their wishes heard, so too does SmartWeb need your help.
For SmartWeb developers and commiters there is a Developers Guide.
Whenever you get your hands dirty with the framework remember there are a lot of users depending on your help to get out of their problems. Additionally your contribution to our code could be easily posted as patches!
Whatever is your skill at programming, coding or documenting our framework can really appreciate your ideas both in terms of suggestions and feature requests on our framework or modules and new modules!
The best thing that a user can do is to evangelize the framework throughout its collegues giving momentum to the framework, enalrging the user base and giving us the opportunity to get visibility! ;-)
SmartWeb has a number of Mailing Lists, and a the SmartWeb User List is specifically dedicated to answering questions about all SmartWeb things.
