Timeline is an open source project that is developed by a community of people. Anyone interested can participate in the development.
There are many ways you can contribute to the development of Timeline. The most useful thing you can do is to just use Timeline and tell us how it works for you. Send feedback and comments to the Mailing list and participate in discussions.
