One of the greatest ways to contribute to Mantis is to contribute your talent and time. For Mantis to keep growing we need such support in all areas related to the software development cycle. This includes: business analysts, developers, web designers, graphics designers, technical writers, globalization developers, translators, testers, super users, packagers and active users. If you would like to contribute in any of these capacities please contact developers mailing list.
Q: Why are some roles in Red and others in Green? A: The roles in green are well defined and described at the end of the link. Those in red are not defined yet.
It feels great when we get feedback from the user community about how Mantis had a positive effect on their personal experience, made them more productive, and benefited their organization. A lot of the feedback I get is via email, some on mailing lists, and some on forums. I would encourage such users to blog about it, write their story in the Mantis Success Stories, tell their friends about Mantis, and recommend Mantis to other organizations. Mantis is driven by it's community, the greater the community, the greater the ideas, the greater of a product it becomes.
If you have a blog, then blog about MantisBT, review it's features and help us spread the word.

If you have a product that can be integrated with Mantis to provide value for Mantis users, that would be a great place to contribute and benefit both your project's community and the Mantis community. A great example of this is in in the area of integration with content management systems (e.g. *Nuke, Xoops), project management (PHPProjekt), and TestLink for Test Management. Mantis can easily be integrated with projects in any programming language whether it is hosted on the same webserver or anywhere else in the world. This can be achieved through its MantisConnect PHP webservice which is built on top of the Mantis API. MantisConnect also comes with client libraries and samples in languages like PHP, .NET, Java and Cocoa.
