Although Nyaruka originally created the website we look forward to having contributions from the Kigali community to enhance it over time. Just use the normal Github fork/pull request process in order to submit patches.

Before embarking on major changes please file a new Issue with your planned enhancement so we can discuss whether it is appropriate.
