Last year winter we organized an Iberian Collective in the south of Spain to activate volunteers and boost the development of Trustroots. We realized that meeting physically and saving some dates is the best way for us (the volunteers behind the social network) to focus and dedicate time to the Trustroots project.
For this reason, we are calling for another collective, a physical meetup of Trustroots volunteers, developers, supporters and anyone with the will to help. The purposes are similar as last year: work on the codebase passionately, think on new features, meet and get together in person, welcome new volunteers and make strategic decisions. And, of course, we will organize some fun activities too!
This time the event will take place in Barcelona (the exact place is still to be confirmed) and will happen during the weekend of the 30th of November – 1st of December, although some people will stay around longer.
Come and spread the word. We need more enthusiastic people on board!
If you have any question or want to confirm assistance, please reach out: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
