Samba IRC Channels
Samba is discussed on two IRC channels on the FreeNode network (irc.freenode.net).
User questions about Samba can be asked in this channel. Please keep a few things in mind:
- Make sure you have read the right parts of the documentation before asking a question.
- Don't ask if there is anybody who can help, just ask your question. If there is somebody who knows the answer, (s)he will reply.
- Make sure you are either running the latest version of Samba or have verified that your problem is not fixed in a later release than the one you are running.
- If you desperately need an answer and nobody is answering on IRC, try the mailing lists.
This channel is the equivalent of the samba-technical mailinglist. It is used by the developers to discuss Samba internals and development.
Note: This channel is for discussion about development issues only, not for questions about problems with Samba!
Logs for #samba-technical are available at http://irclog.samba.org/.
Freenode has a couple of general notes about behaviour in IRC channels.
