The main form of communication within the Opencast community is its mailing lists. For occasional chat there also is a Matrix room.
The Opencast mailing lists are hosted using Google Groups. This enables anonymous reading, but posting requires a Google account. Unless otherwise stated, the language used on the list is English.
