The HylaFAX developer community is always looking for new recruits. Don't be scared, you're welcome to lurk until you feel comfortable! If you're looking to become involved on any level, you should definitely subscribe to to the hylafax developers mailing list.

Reporting Bugs

Faithful to our open-source bias, HylaFAX bugs are tracked using Bugzilla, a product of the Mozilla Project. Please do your best to make sure you've really found a bug, and then file it on the HylaFAX Bugzilla, located at http://bugs.hylafax.org/. To confirm a bug one should first check the mailing list archives for other reports of this issue (and possible resolution) and then post to the developers mailing list (described above). Security-related bugs should be reported to security@hylafax.org in order to avoid exploitation of the problem before it can be publicly resolved.

Developer Mailing List
