The web & infrastructure committee is responsible to create and maintain the technical infrastructure for the conference and its organisation. This includes:

Getting started

Get a copy of this year's website by running:

 git clone git@gitorious.org:fscons-web/fscons-org.git
 git checkout 2014

Once you've done some changes, contribute them back by creating a merge request on gitorious or sending a patch on the mailing list.

Most project in the web committee are managed through git and hosted on [gitorious.org/fscons-web/ gitorious.org] or github.

Coordination

Since gitorious has no issue tracker, the committee uses a Trello board for tracking issues.

Other questions can be addressed to the org mailing list. Alternatively, if you need some help, you can use the IRC channel or contact Grégoire directly.
