Help Krusader

Here is your opportunity to contribute to the Krusader project. There are things that need to be done, but cannot be done by us. If you feel you can help, do not hesitate to contact us; every OpenSource can use some help. Please also check the contribute donate URL page on our website for more recent information. Thanks!

To get contributor account and commit changes to Krusader by yourselves you should follow this tutorial. Some useful advices on using KDE Git can be found here. It is a good practice to use merge requests for the non-trivial patches.


Help is needed (we are looking for documentation writers) for keeping the Krusader documentation up to date. The draft explanation of new features is done by the developers on the krusader-devel mailing list, but we need editors to add this information in the handbook. By playing with the new features these editors can give valuable information to the developers for making the new features even better!

Bug triaging

Sometimes bugs are not well reported, that can be mended. In order to free developers, so that they can have more time to e.g. improve Krusader's source code and add features: bug reports can be confirmed, or closed. A list of steps to repeat the problem can be made. Some potential causes can be discarded.

Code testing

Before a new Krusader release is made... many testers are needed to report or confirm problems. If you like to be on the cutting edge of Krusader, and help by the way, consider reporting!
