Communication within the OpenWrt Project

One of OpenWrt's (and former LEDE's) goals is that all project-related communication should be done on public channels that are archived and easily browsable. However, specific problems and tasks may be resolved using direct means of communication. Please look through these choices to find an appropriate means to reach us.

Forum

Due to the past OpenWrt/LEDE merger, there were two public web forums available of which only one is still in use today.

  • The OpenWrt Forum, formerly LEDE forum, provides a place for direct member-to-member conversations about Installing and running OpenWrt and LEDE; Requesting help with development questions; Discussing the documentation; and Publicizing community builds, new packages, and projects that use OpenWrt or LEDE. Forum members can follow the discussion via the web, or optionally through email.
  • The traditional OpenWrt Forum used to host a large community of OpenWrt users and developers and provided a platform to discuss all OpenWrt related topics. Unfortunately, the forum suffered a total data loss in May 2018, which the project was never be able to recover from. Partial archives are available for browsing, but posting is not possible anymore.

Mailing Lists

Due to the merger of OpenWrt and LEDE, we're still in the process of consolidating the mailing lists. The LEDE development list and the LEDE administrative list have been moved to lists.openwrt.org while the bug and commit tracking lists still reside on the old LEDE domain.

  1. OpenWrt-Devel archives and info - Mailing list for submitting patches and general development related work.
  2. OpenWrt-Admin archives and info - Mailing list for project administration.
  3. LEDE-Bugs Archives and info - This list receives bug tracking notifications from Flyspray.
  4. LEDE-Commit Archives and info - This list tracks the commits to our openwrt/openwrt.git and web.git repositories.

IRC Channels

The project provides 3 IRC channels on freenode:

  1. #openwrt - a public channel for everyone to join and participate.
  2. #openwrt-devel - a public channel for developers to join and participate.
  3. #openwrt-adm - a moderated channel that anyone can join but only people with +v flag can write on.

Bug Tracker

Please submit bug reports at https://bugs.openwrt.org/.

Server Status Changes Announcements on Twitter

We will post notices of server outages, maintenance, or other disruption on the lede_project account on Twitter.

Corporate Contact

Please direct general inquiries to contact@openwrt.org to open a confidential discussion with the project developers.

This contact address is primarily intended to find a suitable mode of cooperation and to inquire about project matters without having to disclose your corporate identity upfront. There will be no special treatment beyond this first contact. Please see the OpenWrt/LEDE Project Rules for further information.

Actual development should happen in public and corporations are strongly encouraged to send their contributions through the public mailing lists or in the form of Github pull requests.

OpenWrt summit

The OpenWrt Summit will benefit anyone who wants to learn more about OpenWrt software and is a great opportunity for the core community to get together face to face. Follow on Twitter @OpenWrtSummit
