The notes listed below are technical supplements to the primary technical documentation, which you can find in the BOINC Trac wiki.

These notes are not for volunteers who want to contribute time on their computers to BOINC projects, except for those few whow are interested in the technical details of how BOINC works, or who want to build their own version of the BOINC client from source code. If you want to learn more about how to run the BOINC client on your computer and how to participate in projects that use BOINC, then visit the main BOINC web site at U.C. Berkeley, at http://boinc.berkeley.edu.
