Contribute online

Most of the time, the developer mailing list is our main medium for communication, though we also have #debian-edu on and even, sometimes, real gatherings, where we meet each other in person.

A good way to learn what is happening in the development of Debian Edu is to subscribe to the commit mailinglist.

Report bugs

Debian Edu uses the Debian Bug Tracking System (BTS). View existing bug reports and feature requests or create new ones. Please report all bugs against the package debian-edu-config. Take a look at How To Report Bugs for more information on bug reporting in Debian Edu.
