HOW IS DEVELOPMENT DONE?|
Mainly by creating or updating software packages in RPM binary format using source code archives taken from
upstream external sources.
The packages are made available in folders called repositories or channels.
Some components are internally developed with the help of the git distributed development system.
openmamba makes its own git server available to allow the distributed development of these components.

HOW CAN I TAKE PART TO THE DEVELOPMENT?
Packages creation is made simpler and standard by using the
autospec tool. Some practice is recommended by following the instructions in the wiki page.
openmamba has an automatic update and porting build system which
developers may consult to find and work on manual corrections needed to update distribution components.
HOW DO I ADD A CHANNEL TO MY SYSTEM?
In order to get updates from a channel you need to enable it in the Software sources
settings dialog of the openmamba packages management tool.
A channel can be as well enabled by command line by issuing the following command:
pkcon repo-enable channel_name
