This site is intended as the development center of VectorLinux. It provides version control (svn, git and mercurial), http and ftp services, a bug tracking system and several tools for software development management to the projects that are related to the distribution. The wiki section will host documentation about the development tasks, and we hope it will serve for proposing new features or modifications, and discussing the future of the distro. With the version control system we want to optimize collaborative work and ensure that patches, fixes and contributions will be incorporated into the development process more quickly and efficiently.
You will find the following topics interesting if you want to get started as a developer. There are several ways for contributing, you can help to improve the docs, fill bug reports, contribute packages, patches, code, suggestions or ideas.
For reporting a bug, please use the "New Ticket" link in the bottom of this page. You can read the documentation about the ticket system here:

Casual contributors can submit patches without the need of rw access to the the Subversion repository. We describe some guidelines for the patches and show how to use them.
Creating new packages is one of the best ways of contributing to the Vector project.
