TANGO is the collaborative effort of many people. It is a free open source project i.e. the source code is available under GPL and LGPL open source licences (on tango-cs and tango-ds on SourceForge) and it can be downloaded and modified by anybody. ANyone can send a patch with their changes but changes to the official source code are done by authorised developers. If you want your modifications to be included then send them to the TANGO Controls mailing list. TANGO Controls started at the ESRF but has since then been adopted by a number of sites. The following sites have committed to the sustainable development of TANGO Controls by signing a Collaboration Contract and committing to financing the development of TANGO:
