How to Participate in CHAOSS?

The CHAOSS community is dedicated to fostering an open and welcoming environment for contributors. Anyone can join the mailing list, participate in Zoom meetings, or contribute to any of our projects at any time! Please read our Code of Conduct to learn more about participating in CHAOSS.

Join us for CHAOSS Community and Working Group video conferences

Because transparency is one of our core values, we record and publish all community and Working Group calls to CHAOSStube (our YouTube channel). This should not deter you from participating if you would prefer to keep your information private! Here are a few adjustments you can make to safely join the calls:

  • Keep your camera turned off during the call
  • Make sure your real name isn't shown in your Zoom settings
  • Instead of speaking, use Zoom's chat functionality to communicate (we heavily integrate chats into the flow of voice conversation)

We hope you'll join us!

CHAOSS Community

The first Tuesday every month is a formal 'monthly call' for updates from committees, working groups, and broader community. All other Tuesdays, we 'hangout' informally without agenda. Topics include new metrics, how to interpret metrics, progress on software development, new features that would be nice, recaps from recent events, or community questions.

The CHAOSS community meets every Tuesday at 11am CT (usually 18:00 CET, check your local time) via Zoom -- Agenda and Meeting Minutes
