Want to talk with the Aegir community? There are many channels with various virtues.
The community site has a discussion area that anyone can use to talk about Aegir with others or seek support.
You can join the #aegir channel at Freenode on IRC. There's a loyal community of Aegir developers and users that frequent this channel. Much development discussion also takes place here, and support questions are welcomed.
The core developers also are reachable in #aegir on IRC.
Remember that Aegir, like Drupal, transcends timezones, and even the developers are many hours apart from each other. Sometimes it's quiet, and sometimes it's very busy. Don't repeat yourself: someone will respond eventually if not immediately.
New to IRC? IRC instructions for Drupal users are at: http://drupal.org/irc.
There are mailing lists that can be used for support, general discussion and development or announcements.
- announce - the announce mailing list is used to announce new releases or major news
- users - the user mailing list is used for general discussions and support for Aegir users
- core - the core mailing list is used for internal discussions in the core team
Aegir is often present at many of the popular DrupalCamps and DrupalCons, either as a formal session or in smaller BOF sessions.
We encourage users who are confident in using Aegir to demonstrate it at any relevant events they attend, and to post slides/screencasts so that others can benefit.
As well as the News/Blog area here, the developers also often blog about new Aegir features or share handy tips for the community. Here are two blogs to stay up to date with:
