In biology, mutualism is an interaction between two organisms from which each derives benefit. This principle also applies to proactive members of the Arch community wanting to get involved and contribute to their favorite Linux distribution. This participation benefits not only the community member and their fellow Archers, but all users of free and open source software.

Official Arch Linux project

Post on the forums

One of the easiest ways to get involved is participating in the Arch Linux Forums, which allow getting to know the community and help new users. Please get accustomed with Forum Etiquette first.

Edit the wiki

Wikis, by design, thrive on collaboration.

ArchWiki is a collaboratively maintained Arch Linux documentation. All users are encouraged to contribute.

If you feel capable of editing wiki pages, please help with wiki tasks.

Fix and report bugs

Reporting and fixing bugs on the bug tracker is one of the possible ways to help the community. However, ineffective use can be counter-productive. Please read the bug reporting guidelines.

Create and adopt AUR packages

The Arch User Repository contains community-made package scripts so that users can easily install software that is not in the official repositories. Popular packages get included into the official [community] repository. You can help by creating and adopting packages.

Official Arch Linux projects

You can get involved in the development of official Arch Linux software projects.

Participate in events

There are yearly and monthly events for bugfixing, translating and cleanup. You can find forthcoming events in the Arch Linux Event Calendar.

You can find out how to help sustaining server costs on the official Arch Linux donate page.

Community projects

Note: All projects listed here are community projects. None of these projects are considered official Arch projects.

Arch's community maintains many projects. Feel free to include yours!
