Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


symfony is based on great coding, but what's more important is documentation... and we can rely on it :)
All links to wiki are broken again. Please fix it. And pay attention in next blog on this.
