Tips for Contributors

This project is intended to help codes and other project contributors get oriented about our project tools and practices.

The Bufferbloat Sites

The Bufferbloat sites are hosted on Redmine, a project-hosting engine that combines an issue tracker with a wiki and other useful features.

Redmine’s wiki is not the best wiki in the world, but it’s tolerable and the project group developing it is helpful and constantly improving it.

It also has good access control, and the ability to delegate administration and even project creation, so no single person has to be the center of the universe.

Eating our own dogfood

We believe in eating our own dogfood. The bufferbloat servers are tuned and administered using the same bufferbloat-mitigation techniques we develop for others to use.


The Bufferbloat project servers are fully IPv6 enabled. Dave Taht describes the recipe he used here.
