This is an old revision of the document!
X2Go is mainly organized via IRC and mailing lists. We use IRC in cases where we need quick feedback on specific issues. IRC is also a place where you can get community support from.
With the mailing lists, all content is public. The major (long term) discussions happen on the mailing lists. Also the dicussions from the bug tracker are cross-posted to one of the lists (x2go-dev ML). Before you can send to one of the X2Go mailing lists, you have to get a subscription. This is to avoid spam on the mailing lists.
If you want to ask a question or want to make suggestions, please feel free to show up on IRC or to join those lists you are interested in.
Before asking questions, it is always a good idea to have a look inside the archives of a list to see if a topic has already been discussed and a solution to your question been provided.
As there are already people on the list who may have spent a lot of time working on this project, please be kind and think about what you are going to write (Netiquette). Please keep in mind that our list archives are public and that they are visited by search engines!
The X2Go upstream runs its own IRC channel on Freenode. Join us in the
#x2go channel on
/connect irc.freenode.org /join #x2go
NOTE: Many of the upstream developers of X2Go live in Europe (CEST timezone). So if you are ,,from far away'' then make sure you hover around on IRC long enough for one us to get out of bed, have breakfast and answer your questions. You may have to ask your question on IRC and stay in the channel over (your) night and look for an answer the next morning.
Nearly all mailing list postings are cross-posted to the Gmane mail archives. For more information on Gmane, please read here: http://gmane.org/about.php
The site http://x2go-community.org is run by Tobias Luther from the German Linux4Africa project and especially aims at the German speaker people of the X2Go user community. Esp. those of you who prefer a forum-like website to using mailing lists and feel uncomfortable with writing/reading/discussing in English.
Tobias Luther will make sure to involve the developers / power users from the international community, so that synergies will be made.
