About Allura

Allura is an open source implementation of a software "forge", a web site that manages source code repositories, bug reports, discussions, mailing lists, wiki pages, blogs and more for any number of individual projects.

SourceForge.net is running an instance of Allura.

Allura is currently hosted here at https://sourceforge.net/p/allura/ but is in the Apache Incubator, and will transition to be managed and hosted there. See status and more information at http://incubator.apache.org/projects/allura.html

Allura is written in Python and leverages a great many existing Python packages (see requirements.txt and friends). It comes with tests which we run with nose (see http://somethingaboutorange.com/mrl/projects/nose/1.0.0/).
It is extensible in several ways, most importantly via the notion of "tools" based on allura.Application; but also with themes, authentication, and various other pluggable-APIs.

Contributing to the Allura Project

Allura is an effort for the community: an open source platform for sharing development. We think it should be of the community as well. We want to encourage community involvement in development, testing and
design. We do that with a public git repo, a bug tracker, a discussion list and an IRC channel.
