Getting involved

It is easy to become a GPE developer! You can join the project at the GForge project page. Information about the mailinglists and SVN access can be found there as well.

For a list of open tasks, please take a look at the GpeThingsToDo wiki page.

Of course your own ideas are welcome too - GPE is intended to encourage people to start developing software for mobile devices and to come up with new ideas or simply porting of desktop software to these devices.

Mailing List/Usenet News

The main point of contact for the GPE project is the mailing list gpe-list@linuxtogo.org.

To subscribe to the list go to http://lists.linuxtogo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/gpe-list and follow the instructions.

The archive of this mailinglist can be viewed here: http://projects.linuxtogo.org/pipermail/gpe-list/

You can read past articles in the old handhelds.org mailing list archive at http://handhelds.org/hypermail/gpe/current/.

The mailing list is also accessible via a bi-directional Usenet News/mailing list gateway, provided by GMANE: news://gmane.comp.handhelds.gpe. Here is a HTTP view of the newsgroup, with a search function.


GPE developers and users can be found on the #gpe-project channel in Freenode IRC network. Just try the server irc.eu.freenode.net or irc.freenode.net.

There are GPE hackers in the US, Europe, and Australia.
(There are GPE hackers in several European countries, though the most are probably in the UK.)
