The current Tango documentation would not be possible without the help of:

  • Sphinx - a big thank you especially to Georg Brandl for inventing Sphinx (by chance Georg is also a member of the Tango community)

  • Github - for hosting the tango-doc repository

  • Travis - for the continuous integration of tango-doc

  • Read-the-docs - for formatting and hosting the online documentation

  • Tango Collaboration - who sponsored the first Tango Write-the-docs camp and the conversion to Sphinx
