<latemp_subject "Contribute to the Perl Beginners' Site" />

<p>
    We feel that the Perl Beginners' Site should be a community site
    instead of a centralized "Cathedral"-like site. Thus, the entire source
    code is available online and contributions from outsiders are welcome.
    There is a <a href="./list/">list of contributors</a>, so make sure
    your name appears there as soon as possible.
</p>

<p>
    Here are ways in which you can contribute to the site:
</p>

<h2>Contribute to the Wiki</h2>

<p>
<a href="<wiki:link />">The Wiki</a> is a portion of the site that can
be edited by anyone at any time. Feel free to add your own material there.
</p>

<h2>Join the Mailing List</h2>

<p>
By joining <a href="<mailing:list:link />">the mailing list</a>, you will 
receive questions by E-mail, which you can answer. (or alternatively be able
to ask your own)
</p>

<h2>Visit the Help Web Forum</h2>

<p>
The <a href="<web:forum:link />">Help Web Forum</a> is meant to help people
with their Perl problems. You can visit it if you have questions or would like
to help people with their problems.
</p>

<h2>Contribute to the Core Site</h2>

<p>
You can send patches or corrections to the HTML pages of the site. It is 
preferable to send corrections to the <a href="$(ROOT)/source/">site's Web 
Meta Language source</a>, because they can be applied immediately.
</p>

Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
