The Inkscape project welcomes contributions to its website at
https://inkscape.org/. Your help is valuable in different areas, and
this page provides info to guide you.
We always need editors, translators, testers, designers and developers —
and if you think you can help in any of those areas, please contact us
by sending a mail to the translators' mailing list (for translations) or
the documentation mailing list (for website development and contents).
We have a small team of people who look
after the web site contents, keep it up-to-date and constantly look for
ways to improve it, by collecting information from various sources and
presenting it on the web site. You can support us in various ways:
suggest improvements or corrections, write contents about topics that
are missing, write news articles and help with ‘marketing’, or join us
long-term and help with contents maintenance.
All content on the website is licensed CC-BY-SA and GPLv2 or
later. You will be required to agree to this license when you
first edit a page.
Don't disrupt existing pages. If you don't know what you want to do
yet, then draft the page here on the wiki, Etherpad or in a separate
No page is precious to any one person. All pages can be edited by
any editor and disputes about drafting changes should be brought to
the inkscape-docs mailing list or website editor in chief.
The website's content is usually very flexible to updates, but final
decisions by the webmaster must be accepted by all editors.
Page language in English or translated should keep to the
contributors rules. No swearing, no aggressive content and on
website pages there should be no opinion.
Translations should be strictly a translation of the English
versions of pages. If there is new content, it should be added to
the English page first to keep all versions of the page in sync.
When you have made a change to the English website that changes the
contents (i.e. not correcting grammar or a typo), and thus requires
translation, please kindly inform website translators via
translators' mailing list of the change you made. Try to finalize
your changes to a page, before you call out to them to do
Your account will then be enabled with the right permissions to add and
edit any of the pages on the website. Please take care not to disrupt
other content as you edit the website. As before, don't hesitate to ask
other website editors on their mailing list if you need help.
If anything goes wrong while you are editing — for example, you
encounter a bug, or you accidentally delete something you did not intend
to delete, or something weird happens, and you don't know why —, please
ask for help on one of the mailing lists — either translators, or
inkscape-docs. You can also contact your team admin directly or file a
bug report for the website at the bug tracker.
If you are fluent in a language different from English, please consider
joining our website translators'
team. We strive to make Inkscape
accessible for as many people as possible, and internationalization is
important to reach this goal.
For being able to translate the CMS contents and the news, you will

The Inkscape project has a side project — inkscape-web — which produces
the website seen by users and used by everyone to find resources.
You can support the website development with things as easy as reporting
bugs, or focused testing, or you can volunteer to test the web site more
systematically before a new release. Other important areas where you can
help us are website design, and website development. If you would like
to help, contact Martin Owens (firstname.lastname@example.org).
