Lots of good stuff in December, at the Collective.
mrkvon and banan arrived here a while ago and have been excellent at getting me deeper into the code base. This led to some cosmetic changes on the site, including edit buttons on some static pages such as the guide.
Related to that, we now have a wiki: wiki.trustroots.org – it’s actually not new, we simply hijacked Couchwiki, which is a wiki I was running since 2009 (when couchsurfing decided to take down the CouchSurfing Wiki – it took a couple more years to pull the final trigger).
And then we have a nicer developers.trustroots.org that can help with getting more people active.
akronix returned for a couple more days, and progressed with a text-based user search function. This will go live really soon. mrkvon and banan have done great work on
- moving to React
- moving forward some of the older pull requests
- adding translations (i18n) to the site – wanna help translate?
- work on implementing references – it would help a lot if you sign up for a test account at dev.trustroots.org and play with this
We now have a Discourse forum: meta.trustroots.org is a place to coordinate and discuss ideas and more.

tl;dr We’re organizing a Trustroots Collective this Autumn somewhere in the South of Portugal or in Andalusia.
A Collective is a time and space bound group of people choosing to work non profit on the same cause they believe in, like hospitality (exchange) or contributing in helping for any other reason.
In short, we will rent a space for volunteer work on Trustroots.
Trustroots has been around for a while now, and the Community is growing nicely with amazing people. This is the reason Trustroots needs some more love and help energy to keep moving on. Now it’s time to accelerate things a bit.
Trustroots is reaching out for YOU.
We are aiming to start in October, and keep it going till at least December 2018. In other words, TR Autumn ’18 Collective.
We’re aiming for the South of Portugal, Algarve, or the West Andalusia region of Spain, near the frontier.
Our first choices are either the beach of La Antilla or the beach or El Portil, in South West of Spain., but open for ideas if feasible.
This a particular interesting area for few reasons, like its mild Autumn weather (some people would call it Summer), kilometers of beach to walk, and tons of places to trip to in the near by area. This zone holds the largest protected area in Spain, including a National Park, is also close to spectacular rocky beaches in Algarve, beautiful and big Sevilla is 90 minutes away and it has all the peace of the ocean right on the corner.
If you are coming from or going to Africa around those dates, this can also be a good place to make a stop and give the TR Community a hand (please read below) as part of your adventures.
We’d like to have a place where we can volunteer on something we love, TR Community, and also have a place to share an international helping spirit.
We have some awesome people in the network now. We want to reach out and get some of these creative minds together in one space.
We will be all sharing the place, work, ideas, and how we would like to contribute or how TR should grow. However,sometimes work and fun go hand & hand and we want this to be one of those.
Food (Veg), shared accomodation and optional activities will be organized for volunteers willing to run the extra mile to help TR be accesible to more people.
