2011/05/19 We now offer lots of improved facilities for users that are willing to actively contribute to the project. Whether you are a user willing to send a lab, or you are a developer interested in actively collaborating to the development of Netkit, you can find many resources to help preparing and submitting your contribution. Correspondingly, we have published and moved our development repository to Github, a public platform that offers lots of powerful instruments for collaborative development. As a consequence, we moved bug reports to Github's issue tracker. Last, we have improved the web site to reflect all these changes.

In order to find your way through all the changes, we have scattered an easy-to-spot icon through the web site, indicating resources that are useful for prospective contributors and developers. Click on that icon for more information about contributors' and developers' resources.
