Also it is possible to install extra software packages from our APT repositories.

     23<h2>Getting Involved</h2>You don't need to be a programmer or professional user to help us make Parsix better. Reporting issues, hardware incompatibilities and testing beta and testing versions would be a great help and is really appreciated.<br><br>
     24<img style="float:left; padding:8px;" src=""><br>Reporting issues you see, missing hardware support or driver incompatibilities and anything you think is not normal, is a great help. It will make big role on discovering unknown bugs and problems and solving them will improve the overall quality of what you use. Feel free to use our <a href="/report/1">bug tracking</a> system to report issues.<br style="clear:both;">
     25<img style="float:left; padding:8px;" src=""><br>If you are familiar with Debian packaging system and are interested in getting involved in the project, you can join us! All you need to do is send an email to the project leader at alan AT parsix DOT org<br style="clear:both;">
     26<img style="float:left; padding:8px;" src=""><br>Truth be told, most of developers hate documenting! Documentation is an area of our project that we always need help for it. All of our major documentation is already outdated and needs to be updated. You also can help us to port existing Wiki content from our <a href="">old website</a> to this new system.
