A forum for Flathub

24 Jan 2020

Flathub is primarily built around GitHub, where applications manifests and infrastructure code live. Unsurprisingly, it turns out that code hosting platform isn’t exactly a go-to place for the community to connect, even if one slaps a discussion label on an issue. Timezones and personal commitments mean that IRC is also not an ideal platform for discussion, and Flathub does not have a mailing list for discussion and announcements.

To remedy this, Flathub now has a forum at discourse.flathub.org! Right now, there are three categories:

Please drop by the forum and say hello, even if you don’t have any specific questions yet! You can sign in with your GitHub account, if you already have one; and you can configure Discourse to send you emails if that’s what you prefer. (If you have an issue with a particular application, please open an issue on GitHub as before – this is the best way to get the attention of the maintainers of that application.)

See you there!
