Overview Committee Liaison

Dallan is available as a liaison between this group and the Overview Committee. There may be times that additional help is needed for this group to operate smoothly. Some examples include: a need for additional volunteers, questions about tasks, requests for assistance with conflict resolution, requests for policy changes, etc. If you would like help, please feel free to contact me either via my talk page or via email

About the Website features Committee

This page belongs to the Website Features Committee members. Please feel free to edit as you see fit.

It is not used much, but the #werelate IRC channel on freenode.net is also available for real-time discussions.

Source code

The entire WeRelate codebase has been open-sourced (under the GNU General Public License) and hosted at Github to make it easier for people to add new features.

The code is available at https://github.com/werelate/

Most of the code is in PHP, though there are also portions in Java (search), Adobe Flex (GEDCOM review), and Javascript (family tree), so there should be something for nearly everybody :-). We want to make it easy for anyone to run on their local system.


Please enter a brief description of the feature you would like to work on with your username. For more information and support please leave a message for Dallan. You are welcome to peruse the suggestions for things you could volunteer to do.

All issues should be reported on Github.
