While Pressbooks is open source and free for you to use, it’s not free for us to create and maintain. As a result, we ask our open source users, who depend on the long-term sustainability of the software, to contribute to the project in various ways. Our favourite kinds of support are:
- code contributions and testing
- open source user support
- financial contributions
If you are an institution using Pressbooks and would like to help sustain Pressbooks financially at any level, please consider hosting Pressbooks with us or contact us so that we can discuss how best to work together.
The Pressbooks Open Source community is made up of people and organizations who use Pressbooks for all kinds of publishing.
We hold an open meeting at 2pm EST on the last Thursday of each month to discuss developments and new and ongoing projects. To join us (please do!), keep an eye on the Development channel in our forum for details on how to join the call at the end of each month.
Our forum is a place for developers and Open Source users to discuss forthcoming features, and for users to ask the community for help. If you use Pressbooks, we invite you to help others who may be encountering issues.
You can always report bugs, open pull requests, and follow our development on GitHub. We also maintain an ideas repository where we welcome product suggestions and feature improvements from any and all.
