28 28  If you're interested to contribute to an existing project on http://github.com/xwiki-contrib, please send an email to **##devs AT xwiki.org##** (after having [[subscribed>>dev:Community.MailingLists]]), introducing yourself and explaining what you wish to do. Make sure to create an account on GitHub and mention this id in the email so that we can give you access. Thanks for helping out! :)

30 += Why join XWiki Contrib =
31 +
32 +You could very well develop your XWiki extension in your own GitHub organization and you wonder why put your project on XWiki Contrib. Some reasons:
33 +* You join a Community, the XWiki open source community. We value a lot the community notion and we want to be more like the Apache Software Foundation (strong sense of community) rather than Source Forge (list of independent projects, little community). In particular, this is why we ask you to introduce yourself when requesting a project.
34 +* This makes your extension visible to the XWiki community and thus other contributors may want to join you in participating to the development of your extension (contribute on code, discussions, promotion, etc).
35 +* You get some tools setup for your project (GitHub repository, Issue tracker, Wiki pages)

32 32  The contrib project is open for anyone with a project that request it. Simply send us an email at **##devs AT xwiki.org##** using "**[Contrib]**" at the beginning of your email's subject. Let us know the name and a short description of your project. If your project has already been made available for download on extensions.xwiki.org, please precise it and point us to its page (If it is not, then no need to hurry, you will make it available once it's ready). Finally, let us know which of the listed tools you need. For GitHub access, you will need to register a user on http://github.com and let us know about it (a best practice is to have a username composed of the first letter of your first name immediately followed by your last name, the whole with no capital letter, for example **jdoe** if your name is John Doe).
