Kete 1.1's major work was funded by Te Reo o Taranaki, Aotearoa Peoples Network New Zealand (, the New Zealand Mental Health Commission (, Katipo, and HLT. It was done by myself, Steven Upritchard, and new Kete team members at Katipo, James Stradling and Kieran Pilkington. Patches were contributed by Joe Atzberger and Mason James for Liblime as well as Sam Villain for Catalyst IT, Ltd.

Kete is a Ruby on Rails application, so huge thanks go to those that have worked on Ruby and Ruby on Rails for providing a great foundation to build an application on top of. Thanks also go to the team at IndexData ( for their work on Zebra which Kete uses as the basis for its search and browsing functionality.

Kete also benefits from numerous plugin and gem developers, see vendor/plugins and config/required_software.yml for details. Thank you for the great software libraries!

Enjoy Kete 1.1,
