Officially all we will say is it was started by members of the Pirate Party of Canada. Individual members may self-identify with the project if they wish or may remain anonymous as they see fit.
A few of the people involved can be found in IRC Chat at irc.pirateparty.ca port 6697 (SSL Secured) or 6667 (Insecure) in the channel #piratelinux.
First and foremost you can publicize the project. The more hits we get the more people we get doing this the better off everyone is.
If you wish to contribute articles or guides then get in contact with someone and they can set you up with an account for this wiki.
