  • Mailing List - Great for following the project at a high level because it is low traffic, mostly release notes and blog posts on new features.
  • Forum - Share an idea or propose a design where everyone can benefit from the discussion and find answers to questions later.
  • Dev Meeting - Biweekly meeting where we discuss Porter Enhancement Proposals, demo new features and help other contributors.
  • Open an Issue - If you are having trouble or found a bug, ask on GitHub so that we can prioritize it and make sure you get an answer.
  • Slack - We have a #porter channel and there's also #cnab for deep thoughts about the CNAB specification.

Looking for Contributors

Want to work on Porter with us? 💖 We are actively seeking out new contributors with the hopes of building up both casual contributors and enticing some of you into becoming reviewers and maintainers.

Porter wouldn't be possible without our contributors, carrying the load and making it better every day! 🙇‍♀️

Do you use Porter?

Take our user survey and let us know if you are using Porter. Project funding is contingent upon knowing that we have active users!


Porter is an open-source project and things get done as quickly as we have motivated contributors working on features that interest them. 😉

We use a single project board across all of our repositories to track open issues and pull requests.

The roadmap represents what the maintainers have said that they are currently working on and plan to work on over the next few months. We use the "on-hold" bucket to communicate items of interest that do not have a maintainer who will be working on them.
