OpenVZ is open source software, and if you like it, the best thing you can do is help the project. There are many ways that you can contribute. Whether you are a normal user, a geek, or a hardcore developer, the one and most important thing you can do is to actually use OpenVZ.

The list below explains some of the ways that you can contribute.
