The syslog-ng team has started this guide to widen the community of contributors by providing a short and fair description to the project. This document was written for users and developers. You can find sections about installing syslog-ng, others are for introducing you to the tools and techniques we use.
We hope that you will find our GitBook useful and will be ready to create your own ideas. Feel free to contribute and propose your chapter ideas.

We use waffle.io to track the issues.
We are planning to use CI with the repository to avoid typos and compile errors.
You can find a
Vagrantfile in the repository that you can use to install a development environment to test your modifications.
vagrant box add ubuntu/trusty # downloading the proper image vagrant up # powering up your vm vagrant ssh # ssh into the vm
/home/vagrant/projectand use the
gitbook servecommand to start compiling the book. You can reach the locally rendered GitBook on
Vagrantfileprovided. Later TravisCI will also run some tests on the repository to avoid problems.
