Mattermost - the new place to be for all things Koha Community

The Koha Community, the home of the world's first open source ILS, has been discussing for many years on how we would like to improve communication across the Koha Community and it finally became reality at the 2024 Hackfest in Marseille.

The Koha Community decided a new tool that is as inclusive as possible, open source, modern, easy to use and familiar would be the best option. The tool selected is Mattermost. The platform is a place to ask questions, discuss bugs, raise issues or find out news about the Koha project.

IRC

There is currently a bridge to IRC so that anything posted in IRC appears in a channel in Mattermost and anything posted in that channel (in Mattermost) appears in IRC. There are no plans to leave IRC completely - it will take time for everyone to get used to Mattermost and for the community to make sure it isn't cutting out any voices if it does decide to stop using IRC.

The current Mailing lists are also unaffected by this change.

PTFS Europe is hosting the Koha Community Mattermost server and there are a number of admin users across the community.
