OpenZFS brings together developers and users from various open-source forks of the original ZFS on different platforms and we're always looking to grow our community. There are a multitude of ways to contribute to the project and contributors happy to help newcomers. As we add diverse perspectives, our community becomes richer, and we're committed to creating an environment where all people feel welcome.
Resources for Newcomers
The community communicates a couple different ways - some of the main ones include:
- An OpenZFS mailing list designed for ZFS developers to review ZFS code and architecture changes from all platforms.
- A Slack workspace that you're welcome to join for questions, communication during conferences, and general community discussion.
- The OpenZFS Twitter account, which shares community updates and promotes ZFS-related events, blog posts, and talks.
