Welcome to the Community Team page. The Community Team is for people working on growing and maintaining the Tor community, which means things like outreach, advocacy, teaching, and the support desk. There's the internal Tor community of core members, and there's the external community of global users, but these are not always discrete categories, and we're working to define what we mean by each. Some of the subcategories of this team include:
This team includes anyone working on the projects described above. We're not listing names here to keep the team open to everyone. You can contact the Community Team lead at alison [at] torproject [dot] org.
Our synchronous medium of communication is IRC meetings that happen every other Wednesday at 1800 UTC beginning on 23 March, 2016 in #tor-project on OFTC. If you've never been on IRC before, here are some instructions to get started. These instructions are for a Mozilla IRC server, so instead of irc.mozilla.org you'll use OFTC. The OFTC server addresses are: irc.oftc.net:6667 (alternative ports: 6668-6670, 7000) or irc.oftc.net:6697 for SSL (alternative port: 9999) (SSL is recommended).
Our asynchronous medium of communication is the mailing list. This list is public in the sense that anyone can subscribe, send emails and read archives. Feel free to subscribe and just listen if you want, and feel free to post if you have a question that you think is on topic.
