After your introduction to the documentation community through the mailing list above, it is time to get access to the Foundation's NextCloud service that stores our files.
Getting your Single Sign ON (SSO)
To access the TDF infrastructure services you must get a username (your SSO username) from our authentication services.

Contact documentation at libreoffice dot org to inform your username and to proceed with getting access to the LibreOffice Documentation folders in Nextcloud.
Note: For the moment, the access of the source documents in NextCloud is granted on a case by case basis.
Once the access is granted to the LibreOffice Documentation folders in Nextcloud, you will see it in your root directory of the Files app.
