README for Launchpad

Launchpad is an open source suite of tools that help people and teams to work together on software projects. Unlike many open source projects, Launchpad isn’t something you install and run yourself (although you are welcome to do so), instead, contributors help make <https://launchpad.net> better.

Launchpad is a project of Canonical <http://www.canonical.com> and has received many contributions from many wonderful people <https://dev.launchpad.net/Contributions>.

If you want help using Launchpad, then please visit our help wiki at:
