The FSFE provides infrastructure to foster public discussion on Free Software topics. Everybody is encouraged to freely state their opinions on these platforms, but please keep the netiquette guidelines in mind. In particular be aware that discussions inside the FSFE's technical infrastructure are covered by our Code of Conduct that kindly asks all participants to be excellent to each other.
We have a number of mailing lists for local groups as well as thematic teams. You can find a complete list of the public lists on our mailing list server.
Discourse - Forum
We are experiencing with Discourse, a forum-like discussion platform, as a volunteer-run service provided by the FSFE but still in a beta phase. It serves as a test case for specific topics and will be evaluated over time whether it fits in the FSFE’s communication setup and mission. You are welcome to become part of this new service and help us improving it.
