Volunteering

Are you as excited about the Librem 5 phone as we are?! So excited you NEED to volunteer? Well we are excited to welcome you to a community of like minded people!

The Common Goal

Together, we want to improve PureOS for the Librem 5 and there are several ways in which you can help.

  • Maybe you have a free software app that you use on your GNOME or KDE desktop that you would really like to have available on the Librem 5. If that’s the case, then you can work to port that app and make it mobile-friendly.
  • Or perhaps you really just want to write an app for the Librem 5 for the fun of it! We will be providing tutorials to assist you in your app creation.
  • If you worked on something that would be useful to others, share it by contributing to the developer documentation.
  • As the OS and applications are used, they’re being tested and any defects found during testing are appreciated so that they can quickly be resolved.
  • If you want to help but need help choosing a project, check out our list of apps issues and sign yourself up for something with the “help_wanted” label.

Whether it be porting/writing apps, finding defects, writing tutorials, or anything else you can think of.. you are helping the community produce a completely open source phone. We look forward to your help making technical piece of art that respects your freedom.

Note: To include your app in PureOS, please see Publishing Applications.
