== Let us know you exist ==
There are Debian Edu users all over the world. A very easy form of contribution is to let us know you exist and use Debian Edu - this motivates us very much and therefore is already a valuable contribution. :-)
The Debian Edu projects provide a database of schools and users of the system
to help the users find each other, and also to have an idea about where
the users of the distribution are located. Please let us know about your
installation, by registering in this database. To register your school, [[http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/ReferenceSchools|use this web form]].
Currently there are local teams in Norway, Germany, the region of Extremadura in Spain, Taiwan and France. "Isolated" contributors and users exist in Greece, the Netherlands, Japan and elsewhere.
The support chapter has explanations and links to localised resources, as contribute and support are two sides of the same coin.
Internationally we are organised into various teams working on different subjects.
Most of the time, the developer mailing list is our main medium for communication, though we have monthly IRC meetings on #debian-edu on irc.debian.org and even, less frequently, real gatherings, where we meet each other in person. New contributors should read our http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/ArchivePolicy.
A good way to learn what is happening in the development of Debian Edu is to subscribe to the commit mailinglist.
