unlink VolunteerGrid from Dev page because I don't want to attract more strangers who want to join it


Views into the process of Tahoe hackery.

  • The Roadmap page (linked at the top of each page) shows the next planned release and what improvements and bugfixes we are working on.
  • The User Doc page

Developer Docs



  • Tahoe has a programmatic API which enables building custom applications on top of the storage infrastructure.
  • The docs/frontends/webapi.txt document shows how to control a Tahoe node programmatically.
  • The Extension Page lists extension projects and extension development resources.

Source Code

  • Sources for Tahoe and its side-projects are browsable via the "Browse Source" button at the top of each project site
  • To fetch the source code using darcs v2: darcs get --lazy tahoe
    • darcs v2 is highly recommended over darcs v1. If you really don't want to install darcs v2, then you can use darcs v1 instead, but you'll have to run a slightly different command-line and be prepared to wait for tens of minutes for the initial get to finish. The command-line for darcs v1 is: darcs get tahoe.
  • contains snapshots of current source code.
  • The Buildbot page (linked at the top of each page) shows current build and test results. See the BuildbotPolicy page.
  • The Timeline (linked at the top of each page) shows changes to the source code, the issue tickets, and the wiki (i.e. this web site).
  • The code coverage statistics show which lines of code get exercised by the unit tests.
  • The Packaging page shows our currently policy for how to re-use 3rd-party libraries and how to distribute Tahoe to users.
  • How to Submit Patches
  • CodingStandards
  • ViewTickets
