If you're just wanting to know what ideas are available, see our list of project ideas.
You can contact us via IRC on #xapian on irc.freenode.net:
- Freenode's webchat interface works in a browser and is OK for casual use, but you don't stay on IRC when you aren't online and there's an annoying captcha to complete each time you connect.
- Riot.im is a web application which allows you to access a matrix room which is bridged to the #xapian IRC channel. Use requires registration (free), but the big advantage is you stay in the room while disconnected, and then can catch up on the discussion when you connect again. There are also mobile apps for Android and iOS.
- Link for desktop or mobile IRC client.
We have mentors in a good spread of timezones, but you may not get an instant response. This doesn't mean we're ignoring you, just that none of us are at our computers right now, so please hang on for a reply, or use the mailing list instead.
