We are proud to announce our involvement in GitHub. As of CKEditor 4’s release we will be using this popular service to simplify software development and have closer ties with our community. The site’s social networking features also make it the ideal place for CKEditor to fork into different developmental directions.
GitHub will make it easier to track the various teams and contributors working on different parts of CKEditor, and therefore help us solve issues faster. More importantly, this new approach represents the true spirit of what it means to be Open Source by giving you a chance to freely engage in how CKEditor is developed.
The repository makes it possible to share custom versions of the application designed by the community - versions made for specific needs. There will be no “one official” CKEditor, only a foundation for the community to expand into different directions.
