Contact and Support
There are three ways to contact the Kubuntu Project, mailing lists (email), Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and the forums.
Mailing lists are the Kubuntu Project's official communication tools. They allow for email discussions and have searchable archives.
To begin using the mailing lists, please subscribe. Subscribing allows you to post a message without having it sit in an authorization queue, and allows you to receive messages from others who are also subscribed to the mailing list.
Before you send a message, check to see if the topic has been raised in the past. To do this, use Google to search the archives.

Internet Relay Chat
IRC allows you to communicate in real-time with many others who are also using IRC and are on common networks and channels. For more information about IRC clients, see Chat Clients. You can also use your browser to chat. To do so, go to the Webchat page.
All Ubuntu and Kubuntu channels are on the Freenode network. The server address is 'irc.freenode.net', and the default port is '6667'.
Use the command
/join #channelname to join a channel.
