Communtu has gone open source!

May 8, 2011

Some weeks ago we finally opened Communtu’s source code. After intensive bugfixing and adding new features we decided to publish the source code using the AGPL. Now every interested user can work on the source code, which can be obtained at github following We recommend reading the readme-file before using Communtu locally or on a separate server. If any problems are encountered, feel free to contact us in our IRC channel #en-communtu on

Interested users can also find us at this year’s LinuxTag in Berlin and discuss with us or ask for help if problems are encountered using the Communtu website. As last year, we have a shared booth with the Ubuntu community in hall 7.2a, booth 106. We’re looking forward to your visit!


Review and look-out

January 13, 2010

Year 2009 is over and we’re looking ahead. We used this as an occasion to do some programming for a whole weekand and talked about the last and next milestone.

Our review on our last milestone was very positive. Within three months seven people completed 179 tasks. Our goal of launching the English abstract of Communtu and converting our repository were the main tasks of the last milestone. We successfully created the first Live-DVDs, automatic tests in Communtu have been improved and the first test are already running and with Conny we got a mascot.

At the past weekend we talked about what we want to achieve during the next seven weeks (Communtu will be then at the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage): we want to improve the automatic test and publish the feature of creating individual Live-DVDs. Furthermore we want to introduce groups and user profiles and improve the usability.

We gladly accept your constructive criticism. Get in contact with us via the webpage, via e-mail or in our IRC-channel (#en-communtu) on
