How to engage on the Discourse forum

Errors or typos? Topics missing? Hard to read? Let us know.

You interact with the MAAS community primarily through our Discourse forum. This page helps you make the most of that space.

Discourse categories

The forum is organised into several public categories:

  • discourse: A default, largely unmonitored category. Response times here are inconsistent.

  • docs: Home to our documentation. Edit or comment on docs here.

  • news: Primarily for release announcements and deprecations.

  • users: The hub of activity, monitored by the weekly on-duty MAAS developer. We aim to keep unanswered posts below 5% of the total.

  • integration: Currently inactive; use “Users” instead.

  • development: For road-map and architecture talks, and where Show and Tell articles are published.

  • tutorials: Find various MAAS tutorials to help you get up to speed.

  • deprecations: Strictly for deprecated feature discussions.

  • performance: Focused on MAAS performance topics.

Permissions and levels
