Contribute to Cairo – Now Open Source

You may have noticed that the development team has been quiet over the past few months since the release of M1.9.  Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to dedicate as much time as we have hoped with our developers becoming more and more involved with their actual jobs. Of course, none of us want to see Cairo cease development.  So, we thought we’d do something about it that allows us to continue on with our extremely busy lives.

The answer, of course, is going open source.  Starting today, you can log into GitHub and make changes to our git repository.  Naturally, we ask that you be professional and not damage the code.  Go nuts with your skills to help us make Cairo the best it can be!

There are several notes we must make regarding edits:

We look forward to seeing what the community can come up with and thank you all for your continued support.

    Hey all,

    I’m sorry to hear you don’t have time to keep going with the project fully. Releasing it as open source is great news for the community though! :)

    That was the right decision. The only true way for the project. THANK YOU SO MUCH

    Great! Now let’s hope this gets noticed

  4. As someone who worked on Cairo before work took over my ’spare’ time I’m glad to see its available for others to work on – it would have been nice to get a clean stable version out to the world, but I guess sometimes the stars aren’t aligned (please anyone, feel free to yell at EDS/hp for my lack of available time…)
