All DSpace Slack channels follow the DuraSpace Code of Conduct. We ask you to remain respectful in all discussions. We also encourage you to report any violations of the code of conduct to DuraSpace (see the DuraSpace Code of Conduct for more details).
While we do our best to provide live, interactive Q&A via Slack, obviously we all get busy at times (or need to sleep). So, if you do not get a response via Slack, we recommend emailing your question to the dspace-tech as an alternative. If you are encountering issues with DSpace, you should also review the recommendations under our Troubleshoot an error guide.
DSpace also provides a Slack team for day-to-day discussions or Q&A. We recommend ONLY joining Slack if you wish to take part in these day-to-day discussions within our open source community. That said, all are welcome, whether you are a developer, repository manager, or systems administrator!
Please be aware that most of our Slack channels are publicly logged at http://dspace-org.slackarchive.io/. If you would rather ask questions in an "unlogged", private manner, we also provide a #dspace IRC channel for that purpose.
