Geary is maintained and developed by people from the community, nearly everyone volunteers their time. If you are keen to help out, there's a bunch of ways to contribute: triage bugs, translate the graphical interface, fix bugs or implement new features, and more: https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/Contribute
PSA: Since there's been some questions around using Geary with MS Exchange (and Davmail) lately, the FAQ has been updated to describe best to do this: https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/FAQ#Connecting_to_Microsoft_Exchange
@geary @gnome @purism Just got the #Geary email client running on a #librem5 Birch. This is a Geary version built from Purism's git repo https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/geary (I tried the upstream version also but got into trouble with the initial account setup dialog that did not fit the screen). Anyway, glad to see this is working! #FreeSoftware #GNOME #GNU #Linux
