=== General ===
- the swift alpha program allows access to development versions of swift
- this means you will use the same versions as the developers
- please stay calm and patient when you face problems and discuss them with the developer team. For direct questions we have "alpha chatroom" (login/registration required)
- please enable emails from `swift-project.org` and `swiftnoreply(at)gmail.com` for notifications
- understand [[help/download | which version to download]] and check [[help/installation | installation hints]]
=== Register accounts ===
If you are a VATSIM user:
- Register for SSO (Single-Sign-On) with your VATSIM account, then you can use your VATSIM credentials with the swift mapping database. After you have registered [[https://datastore.swift-project.org/page/index.php | here (SSO)]] a swift admin will approve your account.
- If not already done, register with Phabricator (this is where you are right now) by pressing the login button. Unfortunately this site does not support SSO with VATSIM yet.
