Communications

Primary communications channel is the Joomla CMS Development mailing list. If the volume of traffic becomes such that it might be deemed to be a nuisance by those not interested in web services, then we will most likely start a separate mailing list.

There is also a Glip chat [1] for informal communications. Please request to be added by contacting Ashwin Date or Chris Davenport. There was Slack chat and a Skype chat but these are no longer used.
