This community was initiated by Allevo and it started out as a group of people with complementary skills, who worked together to achieve freedom in exchanging information and bringing fixes and suggestions to the FinTP project.
When the founding members feel that a person has earned the merit to be part of the development community, they grant direct access to the source code. This way, people are encouraged to submit suggestions or patches or to join the debates hosted on the forum.
Anybody is welcome to join this community and contribute according to his or her area of expertise. The meritocracy system is being updated and implemented as FINkers United expands, depending on the needs of the members and evolution of both the project and community.
