|Whether you're an experienced Linux developer or an end user just getting started with Linux, there are many ways for you to participate in the openSUSE project. Join a forum to get help or help others with openSUSE, find and report bugs, review the documentation, send your wish list for new packages and features, create and submit patches, or find other creative ways to contribute. Whatever you do, take a few minutes to discuss openSUSE with other users and become an active member of the openSUSE community. For pretty many activities a login is needed to enjoy all the fun and you might create an user page and share some useful information or interests about you with others. Here's a short guide how to do this.|
What skills are necessary?
Any skill is useful for the openSUSE project!
If you are a developer of any kind, we will find something for you to do. But even if you think that you have no Linux skills you can still help.
Give us feedback on the openSUSE wiki, and help to edit it! We'd like to know what pages are and aren't clear, and what content might be missing. Thanks to the insights of new users, we can continuously enhance the readability of the wiki.
If on top of that, if you can write, you are invaluable. We need a lot of articles. There are thousands of Linux programs around, and more are released every day. In addition, new versions of existing applications are released. There is a need for a lot of hands to write about them and to keep reviews current.
