There are many resources available to help you learn about Ascendos and explore the project's releases, infrastructure, and community.
The Ascendos Wiki - including this page itself - is the place where our community works together to ensure that all of our project's information is readily available and intuitively organized.
The Ascendos Policies are how we keep ourselves honest, open, and transparent. We are still a young project and have a long way to go, but on this point, our shared goals and intentions are clear.
Please help improve our documentation by feeling free to edit this wiki and/or submit patches to our development git tree.
The Ascendos FAQ may already have the answer you are looking for. If it doesn't yet and with a little more work you are able to find the answer yourself, feel free to create a wiki account and add the answer for the benefit the next person with that question.
The Ascendos HOWTOs may contain just the educational recipe you are looking for.
The list of ascendos people is where you can get a picture of who specifically we are, and our individual roles and responsibilities within the project.
The Ascendos Online Forum is where you can communicate with developers and users for help and support.
The Ascendos IRC channel is where you can lurk, chat, plan, and more. It is located at #ascendos on the Freenode network. You can join us now with Freenode WebChat. All conversations are logged. There is a preliminary archive of logs online.
Help spread the word about Ascendos! We have official pages on Twitter and Facebook. Help promote the Ascendos project (and get behind the scenes information and news first) by following or liking us today!
Development Mailing List
The Ascendos Development Mailing List is one of the main places where infrastructure development and discussion occurs. You are welcome to join the list and contribute to the conversations and consensus, or just listen. It is also quite educational to review the list archives and see the discussions that led to the current state of the project. However it is our intent to efficiently summarize and document those discussions in the wiki so that one needn't wade through months and years of old emails to gain a good understanding of the project.
Source Code Repository
The Ascendos Source Code is available via git repository. If you are interested in the tools Ascendos uses and provides to build its distro, this is the place to go. Get a full local copy of the tree with a simple 'git clone git://github.com/Ascendos/Ascendos', or browse the repository with the github web-ui. Our built binary output distribution releases and updates are available on our mirror system.
