Tapestry has an active community of users and developers. This is an overview of how to participate, along with a list of some of the great contributions of the community members.
Like all Apache projects, Tapestry uses mailing lists for most communication. You can subscribe by sending e-mail to the addresses below. For each list, there are subscribe, unsubscribe, and archive links. All Tapestry users are welcome to subscribe to any of these lists, however questions on how to use Tapestry in your application are best sent to the user mailing list.
Please note that the Nabble archives are set to read-only and don't allow for posting or answering using Nabble's web interface. You have to subscribe to the mailing list in order to post.

Tapestry issues are tracked in the Apache JIRA.
Unless your problem is clear as day, it's a good idea to discuss it on the Tapestry Users mailing list first, before adding an issue. At the same time, it's generally unlikely that a bug will be fixed unless a JIRA Issue is created.
Eric Raymond has a detailed guide to asking questions the right way. If you are not getting a response to your problem, it's likely because you aren't asking it the right way.
Just saying something is "broken" or "failed" is not enough. How did it fail? Did it do the wrong thing? Throw an exception? Not respond in any way? What exactly did you expect to happen? All of this information should be made available when looking for help, plus context on the general problem you were trying to solve in the first place (there may be a better solution entirely). Read Eric Raymond's guide ... it's fun and informative.
If Tapestry's built-in messages aren't available in your language, you are welcome to contribute a new translation of the message catalogs. For easy instructions, see Localization.
Source code for Tapestry can be downloaded along with pre-compiled binaries.
Tapestry uses Git to manage the project's source code.

The best way to become a contributor is to become active on the mailing list; Tapestry is known to have an active and helpful community on the mailing list, and the more mentors we can add, the better.
If you want to help out with documentation, you must sign an Apache Contributor License Agreement, at which point we can grant write access to the Confluence Wiki (where official documentation is created).
Providing patches (with tests!) is another way to become a contributor.
Active contributors may be asked to become full committers, with write access to the source code. Generally, contributors who have been consistently active and helpful for three to six months are eligible for committer access. If you think you are in that category, don't be shy about contacting members of the Tapestry PMC (Project Management Committee).
