About the Evolvis software

Evolvis – Make it into a project!

evolvis stems from the latin verb “evolvere” and means “you evolve”. “Evolution” as well traces back to this word. is a project platform for open source software / free software projects, the publicly available instance of the Evolvis platform that used to be provided by tarent solutions GmbH and is currently transitioning to a private individual as owner. Here, developers and other project participants can find many things needed for developing a free software project:
source code management, bug/issue tracking, discussion board (forum), task tracking, release and document management, downloads and more. (Mailing lists are, unfortunately, currently unavailable because Python has reached end of life.)

For the avoidance of doubt, let it be spelled out explicitly: Evolvis is an open source developing and sharing platform and thus not an online content sharing service provider per Directive 52016PC0593.

EvolvisForge helps you manage the entire development life cycle
