Getting in Touch¶
It is common to receive questions like “Will the Librem 5 support _____?” or “Is anyone working on adding support for _____ because I want to help?”
If you have questions about anything regarding the Librem 5, we would really like to hear them from you and there are a couple of recommended ways to reach out:
There are a couple of ways to contact us and join the fun. We have email lists that are quiet now but will be lively once the dev kits have been sent out. We also have Matrix chat rooms where other volunteers hang out as well as many people from the Purism team. Both places are great locations to introduce yourself and ask questions.
Watch technical email regarding ongoing software development within the team and feel free to chime in with good suggestions. Depending on the level of involvement that you’re seeking, you can sign up for any/all of these email lists where you can follow development and ask questions:
- firstname.lastname@example.org : General Librem 5 announcements (low volume, read only)
- email@example.com : For all sorts of development conversations. This list will be very technical in nature so join the fun!
- firstname.lastname@example.org : For general users of the Librem 5 that are not so interested in the nitty gritty technical details. This list will contain light traffic until the Librem 5 ships in January 2019.
- email@example.com : All announcements to all community members
For the mailing lists, there is no account setup required. Just subscribe, see a full list here.
