FusionForge is a software forge derived from GForge (versions 4.x). It started as a way to keep the open-source codebase alive, and bring contributors of enhancements together. FusionForge is developed by a group of contributors, ranging from volunteer individuals to members of large organizations and companies. We are also actively collaborating with other forges through the PlanetForge initiative. The free software aspect and the cross-forge collaboration aspects are equally important to the FusionForge project, and were actually triggers for its initiation; the genesis of the project is documented on the announcement.
If you want to install FusionForge, have a look at Installing.
Getting in touch
To get help on administrating or using FusionForge, have a look at the FusionForge manual of the version you are running at the documentation tab. For more info you can chat to the FusionForge developers on IRC at
irc.freenode.net on the channel
#fusionforge, or using an IRC web client. Note that due to timezone constraints, there isn't always someone on IRC; you may want to use the mailing-list, which doesn't have this problem.
We also sometimes organize gatherings, such as the February 2010 meeting, where developers, users and other interested parties can meet face-to-face and discuss technical as well as non-technical questions.
