The clients were kind enough to allow Eldarion to open source the app and
contribute it to Pinax.

In case of any questions we recommend you join our Pinax Slack team and ping us there instead of creating an issue on GitHub. Creating issues on GitHub is of course also valid but we are usually able to help you faster if you ping us in Slack.
We also highly recommend reading our blog post on Open Source and Self-Care.
