Getting in Touch

The community at conda-forge would be happy to connect with you. We have got several ways for you to communicate with us, primarily through issue trackers, mailing lists, and real-time chat.

Issue Trackers

The main issue trackers that you will interact with are

  • staged-recipes: You'll use staged-recipes to create a new conda package on conda-forge
  • Our main website repo: You'll use this repo as a catch-all for issues where you're not sure where else to put them
  • Our enhancement proposals repo: You'll use the enhancement proposals repo if you're interested in substantially changing the way conda-forge operates.

Gitter and Element

The main chat rooms that you'll interact with are

  • gitter: general: Our general chat room for all things conda-forge. Pretty much any question can be asked here and others in the community may be able to help. Move stuff to an issue tracker if your question isn't getting resolved.
  • gitter: core/private: Private chat for the @conda-forge/core team to discuss continued operations and improvements to conda-forge.
  • gitter: power pc: Public chat room for all things related to building for power pc (IBM) systems.
  • gitter: bot subteam: Public chat room for all things related to the conda-forge automation infrastructure. Our automation infrastructure is colloquially referred to as "the bot".
  • gitter: compilers: Public chat room focused on the conda-forge compiler stack.
  • element: conda-forge-space: An element space listing all conda-forge rooms.
  • element: interns: Public chat room for conda-forge interns to discuss projects and seek guidance from the community.
  • element: general: Public chat room for the conda-forge community to discuss anything related to conda-forge.
