How to communicate

Communication with the developers is a great step to becoming a developer yourself.
There are several ways to communicate with people who are involved in Pioneer.
For communication there are some general guidelines.

IRC

The IRC is a fast mean of communication. Chat is faster than a forum but it doesn't allow long messages and pictures.
More about IRC can be found here.

Channel flooding

Channel flooding means the flooding of the channel with messages. This can be spam or repepeated requests. If noone answers to your request, just wait a bit. If noone answers in the next half hour you can repeat your request.

Netiquette

In addition to this there are also the rules of netiquette (Net+Etiquette). This means that you should always be nice to others. Always remember:

  • Manners don't cost anything.
  • The people who work on pioneer aren't payed for this, they are volunteers. So don't expect them to do everything you want them to do.

GitHub Issues

GitHub Issues are a good way to report issues and feature requests to the devs. More Information about GitHub can be found here.
