Alfresco Software sponsors multiple open source projects, and each has its own governance, licensing, and contribution model. This wiki is used to coordinate our efforts around Alfresco Community Edition, and the related projects.

The major projects include:

The Activiti BPM platform is managed as a separate project with its own collaboration site.

Alfresco Enterprise Content Management (ECM) assists organizations in managing business-critical content and document centered processes. The powerful Alfresco content platform allows organizations to manage any type of content, from simple office documents to scanned images, photographs, engineering drawings and even large video files.

Alfresco Software follows an open core business model, where we release open source products that meet core Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Business Process Management (BPM) use cases, and we sell proprietary products that include expert support for mission critical and advanced deployments.

See our corporate web site for more information about our commercial offerings.

Project Governance

The projects listed above are treated as products of Alfresco Software. Alfresco controls the trademarks and commit rights to the official source trees.

Each of the projects listed above are distributed under open source licenses, and both the source code and issue tracker are public. People are encouraged to report issues and submit patches through our issue tracker.

There are many other ways to contribute to the project such as contributing add-ons to addons directory. Some of these add-ons have been accepted into the product.

The Alfresco community consists of more than the people who use Alfresco Community Edition. Members of the Alfresco community interact through our forums, chat channel, and other online properties.

A group of open source enthusiasts decided to organize an independent organization to help govern the community around Alfresco Community Edition. They call themselves the Order of the Bee, and they collaborate closely with Alfresco Software. You can learn more about their activities on their web site.
