Mageia is a GNU/Linux-based, Free Software operating system.It is a community project, supported by a nonprofit organisation of elected contributors. Our mission: to build great tools for people. Beyond just delivering a secure, stable and sustainable operating system, the goal is also to become and maintain a credible and recognized community in the free software world.
This Wiki includes all the resources required to learn, understand or contribute to Mageia.
You are impressed by Mageia and want to try it? You can approach Mageia's world gently with a stand-alone USB Key. Indeed, it will allow you to try Mageia without installing anything and without leaving any traces. This way, you can discover and get used to Linux without risk. Once you have mastered the system, you can easily install it in less than an hour.
- Software management : After installation, your system is almost ready, some elements still need to be configured.
- install and remove software : Once your computer is ready, you can install additional software and components that may be useful to you.

Helping users & advocating the project
Writing, copywriting and documenting
Mageia is localized in more than 180 languages! Clarifying, completing, improving translations of software, guides, tutorials, Web sites, marketing material, etc. happens thanks to the effort of so many contributors. Join them!
Bugs happen! And some get reported. So, logically they need to be triaged to make the task of the packagers/developers fixing them easier: validation (is the bug reproducible?), collecting the needed debugging info from the reporter, assigning the report properly. Grow the Triage team and be the link between users who report bugs in the forums or mailing-lists, and the Mageia Bugzilla used by developers.
Testing & QA
We can't ship software if we are not confident it works well! Testers and QA people make sure what we do (software, packages, ISO's, Web sites) match our expectations for quality before they reach users.
Marketing, Communication & Evangelism + Graphic & UI design
Better understanding of who uses and contributes to the project to help them even more, making sure the Mageia voice is consistent and heard, that's a job for the Atelier team (Marketing and Communication), on both global and local scales. Software isn't only about code neither is Mageia only about technology. So make it human, practical and beautiful! If you have a talent and experience in graphic design, ergonomics join the Atelier team!
Coding & packaging
Contribute to the core of the distribution with your technical skills! Adding, fixing, patching and maintaining software to be included in the distribution, from upstream projects or from Mageia-specific sources. Join the Packagers team!
Web, tools, systems design & administration
Mageia depends on infrastructure and tools that enable everyone to collaborate. These need experts to build, maintain, develop, provide and manage servers, connections, security, applications, data flow, etc. It takes from system administrators to Web designers/developers/integrators to manage this huge task.
Making all the software provided by Mageia available requires several mirrors around the world, to distribute ISO's and software packages. If you have some disk space and bandwidth to share, please see how you can provide an official Mageia mirror.
Financial donations help us allocate specific tasks, secure our infrastructure, fund events, goodies & transportation. 200+ persons already expressed their trust in us with their money, hardware or other resources. We keep a public record of what we get and how we use it.
Designing, experimenting, revealing the unknown
Ideas are great, actionable prototypes are even better. The Mageia project is not only about making a different Linux distribution but also about building new products and experiences with it and with the data around it.
