Communication within the LEDE Project

One of LEDE's goals is that all project-related communication should be done on public channels that are archived and easily browsable. However, specific problems and tasks may be resolved using direct means of communication. Please look through these choices to find an appropriate means to reach us.

The LEDE Forum provides a place for direct member-to-member conversations about Installing and running LEDE; Requesting help with development questions; Discussing the documentation; and Publicizing community builds, new packages, and projects that use LEDE. Forum members can follow the discussion via the web, or optionally through email.

The project offers the following mailing lists:

  1. - Use this list for submitting patches and general development related work.
  2. - Use this list for project organisational purposes. Anyone can subscribe and read this list, only committers may write to this list.

In addition there are two read-only announcement lists:

  1. - This list receives bug tracking notifications from Flyspray.
  2. - This list tracks the commits to our source.git and web.git repositories.

The project provides 2 IRC channels on freenode:

  1. #lede-dev - a public channel for everyone to join and participate.
  2. #lede-adm - a moderated channel that anyone can join but only people with +v flag can write on.
