Getting in touch with the openSUSE-Education Community
There are many ways to get in touch with the openSUSE-Education community to obtain information, help, support, join our development team or to just discuss education related topics.
This wiki on opensuse.org is our official Wiki to provide information about openSUSE-Education. As part of the openSUSE Community, we have an additional webpage http://www.opensuse-education.org/. While the Wiki contains the main documentation, the website hosts the Online-Repositories, a Forum and our bugtracking system.
"Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet chat or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group (many-to-many) communication in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication and data transfers via private message." (see Wikipedia)
There are many tools and applications available for chatting on IRC:
- Xchat for Linux users
- mIRC for Windows users
- MacIrssi for MacOSX users
- Our own WebChat for registered openSUSE-Education users
The openSUSE-Education IRC channel named #opensuse-edu is hosted on the Freenode server at irc.freenode.org. This is our main channel where day-to-day conversations and support relating to openSUSE-Education take place.
The openSUSE-Education mailing lists are open for developers and users. e-Mails sent to one of the mailing lists will be received by everyone that is registered on that list. The mailing list server can be found at http://lists.opensuse.org. For detailed information and the etiquette, visit our Mailing_Lists page.
We have two mailinglists with the same goal, but different languages:
