The FOSSology project maintains several mailing lists to communicate project status and information:
|List Name||Purpose||Subscribe||List Archive|
|fossology||General discussion, user questions and comments.||info||archive search|
|fossology-devel||Developer and hacking discussions.||info||archive search|
|fossology-commits||Automated commit info/diff messages from subversion for project developers. Don't join this unless you want to see EVERY commit message.||info||archive|
|fossology-sysadmin||Automated messages for sysadmins of the fossology project itself. If you are a sysadmin wanting to discuss the admin of YOUR system, use the general fossology mailing list. This list is primarily for maintenance and monitoring purposes.||info||archive (private)|
Generally only the fossology list will be of much interest to non developers;
The FOSSology Project also has a public IRC discussion channel on OFTC.
Anyone can join the channel and chat about FOSSology, ask questions, get help, and get more information. There are usually several FOSSology developers online at any given time.
Most UNIX-like systems have IRC clients available; one excellent graphical tool is called XChat (http://www.xchat.org/)
An excellent port of XChat to the Windows platform is available as well from http://www.silverex.org/
