GitHub — the FreeBSD organisation on GitHub.


Secondary mirrors of doc, ports, and src trees:

Ports-specific projects and teams:

Primary repositories — issues and pull requests welcome — for other well-known projects include:

Pull Requests (PRs)

This is an experimental approach for the FreeBSD Project. While efforts are given to PRs, a more traditional workflow may be more likely to succeed (please see documents such as Contributing to FreeBSD).

A simple PR — non-contentious tree-ready source code, or code that needs only light edition (trivial issues such as merge conflicts) — will be merged, or closed with reference to the commit of the code.

If the PR will be significantly less simple — with consensus building, discussion, or rework — there may be closure without commit.

A PR may require maintainer approval, which we'll try to facilitate. If approval is not timely: consider mailing lists, Bugzilla, Phabricator, or direct contact with maintainers.

For repositories where PRs are not officially accepted:

Joining the Organisation

Requests to be added to the FreeBSD GitHub Organisation can be made via Bugzilla (Product: Services, Component: Git Integration). Please include details of any teams you are a member of or hats you wear so that this can be reflected in GitHub.

Currently, in almost all cases, only those with accounts are approved. External users may apply to be a part of the organisation if a compelling case can be made. Examples may be external contributors that require write (commit) access to a FreeBSD repository other than src, ports, and doc that is hosted within the organisation account.


Webhooks are configured on some repositories. This section details the purpose of each hook, and who configured it.

All external configurations or integrations should be listed here.


The organisation, its repositories, and mirroring, are managed by the Git Admin team.

For general questions, email Git Admin.

For change requests (new repositories, permissions, etc), please create an issue in Bugzilla -- Services:Git Integration
