Website Description  This website. It's where we host our wikis and forums (so we can configure them the way we want) and where we have additional pages that don't fit in well to the Sourceforge website.  Provides project information and facilities thanks to Sourceforge. This website hosts
  • Our mailing lists.
  • CVS which has the source code to Audacity
  • The download service and
  • Some screenshots.  The 'commercial' wing of Audacity. This site has merchandise and a percentage of sales benefit the Audacity project.
