Join Our Community

We want your feedback, issues, patches, and involvement in the development of Podman. See Contributing for how to submit issues & PRs, and chat with us on Slack, IRC, or Email.

Slack and IRC

The Podman developers often hang out on the #CRI-O channel in Kubernetes Slack. Note that the devs are generally around during CEST and Eastern Time business hours, so be patient if you’re in another time zone. There’s also Podman users and developers on IRC.Freenode.Net channel #podman.

Community Meetings

Community meetings are held on the first Tuesday of the month, generally at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time. The meetings are held using using BlueJeans video conferencing and all are welcome. There is no cost other than your time. For more information, see the Community Meeting page.
