## Process

Most of the work happens in the [development branch]( That branch is kept up to date with the development branches for [NeuroML 2]( and related libraries. See for an overview of the various NeuroML libraries.

Note that [pyNeuroML]( is also in active development with other NeuroML2 utilities besides parsing/modifying/writing which this package concentrates on.

## Travis integration

libNeuroML is integrated with the the [Travis Continuous Integration service](
