We're always looking for people to contribute and improve LocalGov Drupal. Some ideas for how you can help are:
- Developers - contribute code, issue reports, bugfixes, test pull requests and documentation.
- Front-end developers and designers - share new theming, and do accessibility testing.
- Content designers - road-test new features and suggest improvements
- Service designers - share your user research and documentation
Every contribution is valuable. As always, you can get in touch at email@example.com or in Slack.
Each phase of LocalGov Drupal has its own mission patch - feel free to download and use them.
