Hack

If you'd like to write code for Amanda, join amanda-hackers@amanda.org. The folks there can give you valuable help and advice on how to proceed.

  • Pick something from Tasks that looks interesting.
  • Fix that problem that's been bugging you, or add that feature you've always dreamed of.

Either way, if you're a git user, it's easy to fork Amanda.

Note that currently the Amanda project does not have a public bug tracker, but instead bugs are simply reported and discussed using the mailing lists.
