-    <p>CouchDB is an open source project. And that means everything, from this website
to the core of the database itself, has been contributed by passionate, helpful individuals
(such as yourself) who liked what they saw and wanted to make something better of it. So if
you like what <em>you</em> see, and want to make something better of it, <em>we&rsquo;d</em>
like to see your contributions. It doesn&rsquo;t matter how familiar you are with CouchDB,
or whether you know how to program Erlang. There are plenty of ways to be helpful! Just ask!

The time and attention of our contributors is our most precious resource, and we always need
more of it. So if you have some time and attention you&rsquo;d like to donate, we welcome
your contributions. It doesn&rsquo;t matter how familiar you are with CouchDB, or whether
you know how to program Erlang. There are plenty of ways to be helpful! Just ask!
 
-    <p>Our community is our most valuable asset, and it could always do with a bit
more love and attention. One of the first things you should do is actually use CouchDB, and
get to know it, read about it, evangelise it, and engage with the wider community. Arrange
a <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/CouchDB_meetups">meetup</a>, give a
talk, <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/People_on_the_Couch">publicize your use</a>
and let people know how you <a href="http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/CouchDB_in_the_wild">use
CouchDB in the wild</a>. You could also get stuck in on the <a href="#user-mailing-list">user
mailing list</a> or <a href="irc://irc.freenode.net/couchdb">IRC channel</a>,
helping new users with their problems. Or come join us on the <a href="#developer-mailing-list">developer
mailing list</a> and lets us know how else you think you can help. There&rsquo;s
bound to be someone to point you in the right direction.
+    <p>Any activity that enriches the project or the community is welcome. You do not
have to contribute code to be a member of this community. Anyone who shows a commitment (in
the sense of being loyal to the project&rsquo;s interests) will be given decision-making
authority. Our primary goal is to build a welcoming, supportive, inclusive, and diverse community.
We abide by a <a href="http://couchdb.apache.org/conduct.html">code of conduct</a>
and a set of <a href="http://couchdb.apache.org/bylaws.html">project bylaws</a>.
 
-    <p>Why don&rsquo;t you check out <a href="http://s.apache.org/Bni">JIRA</a>
and help us triage some of those  issues? Or maybe you&rsquo;d like to help us keep the
<a href="http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/">wiki</a> up-to-date? If you&rsquo;re
looking for something a little more technical, you could help us with our documentation, QA,
packaging, mobile, or release efforts, perhaps? Just drop by on the <a href="#developer-mailing-list">developer
mailing list</a> and let us know what you want to do. There's enough room for any sort
of contribution!</p>
+    <p>Because a healthy community is our most valuable asset, this is a good place
to start contibuting. Learn how CouchDB it is used and why people love it. Read about it,
promote it, and talk to people using it. Arrange or attend a <a href="https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/COUCHDB/Meetups">meetup</a>,
give a talk, or write about your adventures with CouchDB. If you write a blog post about CouchDB
(or find a blog post worth sharing) drop a mail to the <a href="mailto:marketing@couchdb.apache.org">marketing
list</a> (or <a href="twitter.com/CouchDB">send a tweet</a>) and we&rsquo;ll
include it in the <a href="http://blog.couchdb.org/">weekly news</a>. You could
also get stuck in on the <a href="#user-mailing-list">user mailing list</a>, <a
