Development is mainly coordinated via IRC and the mailing list. Be sure to visit both once in a while or you might miss critical stuff.

Mailing List

Development mailing list (Supertux-devel)

Subscription page, Archives, Old Archives

Except for the IRC Channel, this is where most of the development is being discussed. This is the place to send praises and constructive criticism, inform the team about publicity, etc. Note that bugs, including translation updates, should be reported in the bug tracker and not to this list. Due to large amounts of spam, the list is currently set to subscribers-only, so please join before sending anything.

Repository updates (Supertux-commit)

Subscription page, Archives, Old Archives

Anytime a developer commits their work, all the subscribers of this list receive an e-mail. Even though it is mainly beneficial for the comfort and teamwork of the developers, this mailing list is also open to people who are interested in what's actually going on with SuperTux.

Note: You should not send any mails to this list, it is for commits only. Any comments about the commits should go to supertux-devel.

IRC

Most SuperTux team members frequently hang out in the #supertux IRC channel on the freenode network.

If you don't know about Internet Relay Chat yet or don't know about the freenode network, there are extensive articles on Wikipedia.

You could just download an IRC client (e.g. XChat), connect to freenode, and join the #supertux channel.

Please keep basic netiquette in mind. Wait a moment after joining to see if there is a discussion in progress, then ask your question. Don't ask if you can ask a question, just ask. If nobody answers, don't be upset---maybe nobody knows the answer. Don't give up too fast, wait some time for an answer. Usually, people run IRC clients in the background and check for channel activity every 20 minutes or so. It is really annoying when you are just typing the answer and the person asking the question leaves the channel after waiting only 5 minutes. If you still receive no response, you might try the mailing list; it is read by far more people and good questions are normally answered.

Thanks!
