Getting involved (Bosanski)
U evolucionarnoj biologiji, kooperacija opisuje interakciju gdje individualac plaća malu cijenu da donese veliki benefit jednom ili više. Ako je ova kontribucija recipročna, svi uključeni mogu se okoristiti u velikoj količini. Ovaj princip se također odnoso na proaktivne članove Arch community koji žele da bude uključeni i da doprinesu svojoj najdražoj Linux distribuciji. Njihov doprinos ne doprinosi samo članovima community i Archerima, nego svim korisnicima free and open source software-a.
Ovaj članak opisuje kako i novi i iskusni Arch korisnici mogu doprinijeti community-u. Uzmi u obzir da ovo nije velika niti kompletna lista. Prije kontributanja, upoznajte se sa kodeksom ponašanja.
Postaj na forum
Jedan od najlakših načina da se bude uključen jeste biti aktivan na Arch Linux Forumima, koji omogućavaju dodir sa community-em i pomoć novim korisnicima.

Report installed packages
pkgstats provides a systemd timer that sends a list of the packages installed on your system, along with the architecture and the mirrors you use, to the Arch Linux developers in order to help them prioritize their efforts and make the distribution even better. The information is sent anonymously and cannot be used to identify you. You can view the collected data at the Statistics page. More information is available in this forum thread.
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 Reporting bug guidelines.

How can I become an Arch Developer?
The main motivation for your work on Arch should be helping the whole community, and not simply trying to become an Arch developer by any means.
Usually, new developers are picked by the existing developers as the workload increases. Sometimes they post a position and you can apply to fill it, but more often, they just invite somebody they know would be good at it and would fit in well with the rest of the team. Having a portfolio of Arch contributions is the best way to make it on the team.
Here is a list of things that you may do in order to gain some "popularity" towards Arch's developers:
- Establish a reputation as being helpful by offering assistance whenever possible.
- Answer questions on the forum, IRC, and mailing lists.
- Join the Trusted Users to gain packaging experience to show your skills.
- Submit packages to the AUR.
- Join one of the offshoot projects that may be incorporated into Arch mainstream someday, or start your own.
- Work on pacman, makepkg or other Arch projects and submit patches to the bug tracker.
- Traverse the bug tracker and fix existing bugs.
- Find and submit new bugs.
- Fix wiki errors, add new pages, clean up existing pages, and make sure the procedures are up-to-date.
- Submit translations.
