Inkscape Community Teams

The Inkscape community has several teams who meet, discuss and work on different aspects of developing Inkscape, looking after its infrastructure and supporting the community around the project. Here you will find all the current teams and the ability to join them.

Inkscape User

A group of all inkscape users who are just normal users by day, but amazing, attentive super users by night. They make art, they post it and share it, they love Inkscape so much that they found the users team hidden behind a locked door in the basement of the website, behind a sign that says "beware of the leopard" 

Inkscape Developer

The designers, programmers, testers and writers who wrangle the software into a usable form. This is the main body of people who work on inkscape's most technical aspects and they are often found in the inkscape-developer's mailing list. 

Inkscape Board

Inkscape has a board of developers who look after certain functions for the project. These include policy definition, funding and fund-raising, finances and budgeting, brand management and inter-project collaboration. Technical direction still falls to the entire developer community.  

Release Team

The release team is responsible for taking Inkscape and forging it into a more stable, more editable version which can then be packaged for each of the platforms possible. It sets schedules for releases, monitors progress with bugs and decides on blocking and non-blocking bug lists. All in coordination with the developers team. 

Inkscape Vectors Team

The Inkscape Vectors Team is a marketing and outreach group that goes out and advocates for Inkscape online. 

Website Editor

We have a small team of people who look after the web site contents, keep it up-to-date and constantly look for ways to improve it, by collecting information from various sources and presenting it on the web site. You can support us in various ways: suggest improvements or corrections, write contents about topics that are missing, write news articles and help with ‘marketing’, or join us long-term and help with contents maintenance.  


We are the people who make the Inkscape website available in different languages, so everyone can take part in the Inkscape community. We're a helpful and supportive little team of people dedicated to lowering the barriers for people to get started with Inkscape. 

Website Moderators

Website Moderators keep watch over the contents in the gallery, using the Inkscape Project's Code of Conduct as a guide. They help to keep the website a beautiful and safe place for members to share their Inkscape work and interact.
