Overview of Codeberg Projects and their status. This is the place to get involved with Codeberg: Help in mostly every domain is appreciated.

How projects at Codeberg work

Codeberg has a small core team that takes care of the daily operations: We ensure that the servers keep running and that nothing breaks overnight. But to make make Codeberg a nice and comfy place, we need your helping hand!

Projects at Codeberg are usually moving independent of each other, giving them maximum flexibility under the umbrella of Codeberg. This also means: If you feel like one project is not working the way you want, it probably means that there are a bunch of individuals responsible for this part, and they could probably benefit from some increased support. Please try to discuss the matter with them.

Projects are started once a few people group together and want to start it. They might see that it is urgently needed, or they want to experiment a little and have a learning opportunity.

Get Involved

In order to get involved, you can either

  • join an existing project
  • propose a new project in the Project Tracker and motivate others to join you

The coordination happens in the Project Tracker. Creating an issue is never a bad idea!

If you feel stuck, need elevated permissions to some place, or require computing resources to work on your project, you can expect the help from our project coordinators.

The best place to ask questions or have a discussion around Codeberg Projects and Contributing in general is the Contributing to Codeberg Matrix Channel.

Software projects looking for new spirit

These projects have been started, but are currently either unmaintained, or the maintainers cannot keep up with the work.

If you can, consider getting involved here.

Community Projects

These projects do not necessarily require coding experience, but benefit from other things like community management, writing or Public Relations Experience.

Infrastructure Projects

Some of these require certain access levels to Codeberg's infrastructure. If you are interested and commit a certain amount of time, this can surely be talked about. Please see the "Limitations" sections.

In case of upstream projects, maintaining the service also includes collecting and forwarding bug reports to upstream development.

Many of the scripts that we use to host Codeberg can be found in a specially designated organization.
