= Contact and Support =
 
  
There are three ways to make contact with the Kubuntu Project; mailing lists (email), Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and the forums.
 
  
== Mailing Lists ==
+
<languages />
  
Mailing lists are the Kubuntu Project's official communication tools. They allow for email discussion and have searchable archives.

The '''Kubuntu''' community is made up of individuals and teams working to package software, test it, triage bugs, and then promote '''Kubuntu''' to a wider audience. All of the software, artwork, and documentation has been created, tested, used, and discussed openly by people around the world participating in the Open Source community made possible by the Internet. We invite you to help shape '''Kubuntu''' to better meet your needs.
  
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.

The easiest way to give back to the '''Kubuntu''' community is by sharing '''Kubuntu''' with others. Recommend '''Kubuntu''' to others, show them how to download and install it, and discuss the possibilities and qualities of Open Source Software with them. As our community grows, the more vigorous and supported it becomes.

Providing support is an awesome way to give back to the community because it is not required  for you to have advanced skills or to know everything about Linux or '''Kubuntu'''. You'll actually end up learning more as you help others, which increases your own knowledge and skills. This can be a gateway to learning other things, from bug triaging to packaging, and perhaps even to programming. Also, it is quite rewarding to fix the system of someone who is on the other side of the world!

The Kubuntu community is made up of individuals and teams working to package software, test it, triage bugs, and then promote Kubuntu to a wider audience. All of the software, artwork, and documentation has been created, tested, used, and discussed openly by people around the world participating in the Open Source community made possible by the Internet. We invite you to help shape Kubuntu to better meet your needs.

Spreading the word

The easiest way to give back to the Kubuntu community is by sharing Kubuntu with others. Recommend Kubuntu to others, show them how to download and install it, and discuss the possibilities and qualities of Open Source Software with them. As our community grows, the more vigorous and supported it becomes.

Giving support and getting it

Providing support is an awesome way to give back to the community because it is not required for you to have advanced skills or to know everything about Linux or Kubuntu. You'll actually end up learning more as you help others, which increases your own knowledge and skills. This can be a gateway to learning other things, from bug triaging to packaging, and perhaps even to programming. Also, it is quite rewarding to fix the system of someone who is on the other side of the world!

You can provide support and receive it in the IRC channels, through the Kubuntu Users Mailing List, or through the Kubuntu Forums, Ubuntu Forums, and KDE Forums.

Subscribe

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.
