Django's bug tracker and wiki

Django is an open source project, run by volunteers - people just like you! We need your help to make Django as good as it can possibly be.

Django is available under the BSD license. The source code repository is stored on Github.

Getting involved

Much of Django's infrastructure is hosted on Github, or uses a Github login. To log a ticket, or add content to this wiki, log in with a GitHub account. (You may also create a DjangoProject account and log in with that account.)

Once you've logged in with your Github account, please read our contribution guide. This document describes how the Django community works, and the various ways you can contribute. If this document doesn't answer your questions, please file a bug!

If you've read that document, and are looking for a way to contribute, why not try one of the following:

  • Tickets: View active tickets, make bug reports and contribute feature requests. If your bug report is a security issue, DO NOT report it with a ticket. Please read our guide to reporting security issues.
  • "Easy Pickings" Tickets: Work on simple tickets to get familiar with Django's code base and the contribution process.
  • DjangoDesign: Are you a designer rather than a coder? We still want your input. Let us know how we can improve on Django's visual/UX design.
