Aleksej Saushev on November 27 2012 10:31 UTC Review

Just to reiterate what we discussed on IRC.


 


This task is about overviewing multiple ways to get in touch with community: mailing lists, IRC, blogs, wikis.


There're different ways that user can communicate with others, they solve different problems.


This task is about creating an overview of what we have and how these communication channels are used.


You're not supposed to write code for it, but... Given what code attempts to address, you should definitly look at <dholland>'s categorization of PRs.

Julian Fagir on November 27 2012 17:37 UTC What to do

Hi,


I just set the task status back. We had a discussion in IRC (I'm gnrp) about what is missing. The conclusion: You should review a bit the real state of the communication channels. The should-be state is that everything works fine, the real state is that e.g. on IRC, you might get no answers by night, though most people expect that.


Regards, Julian
