Participating in Apache NetBeans consists of the following steps:
- Join the mailing list. At the time of writing (November 2016), the only active mailing list is firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the mailing list for all those who will be developing Apache NetBeans. In time, other mailing lists will become active, for those who will be using Apache NetBeans. The simplest way of participating in Apache NetBeans is to join the abovementioned mailing list, which enables you to follow the latest discussions and progress in the move of NetBeans from Oracle to Apache. To join, send an empty e-mail to this address: email@example.com
- Become a committer.
- Introduce yourself.
