Open source development processes

Kitodo is continually and collaboratively updated by an open source developer community.  This community has set out its principles of software development in its developer guidelines. Users can contribute their own development suggestions and transparently track their progress on the GitHub development platform.
Kitodo.Production is currently being updated and evolved as part of a major project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). A first developer preview is already available on GitHub. More information on the project can be found here (German).

Release management

At present, the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB), on behalf of Kitodo e. V., is responsible for release management.
