Re: [MirageOS-devel] [GSoC '17] Community Bonding and Next Steps

Hi David,

Congrats for being selected and welcome :-)

I think it would be nice to keep the discussions on public channels as much as 
possible. That mailing list is a good place to ask generic questions about 
MirageOS, Irmin and other related projects. For more specific design questions 
and issues related to the code, the usual way to go is discussing (still in the 
open) on GitHub issues:  For instance 
https://github.com/mirage/irmin/issues/415 is a good place to discuss technical 
designs, but feel free to open new issues to discuss about more specific 
technical questions.

Then there are various other places for "real-time" interactions used by the 
community, to ask quick questions or socialising: 
- #mirage IRC channel on freenode 
- #datakit on the Docker slack: https://dockercommunity.slack.com/ (where the 
Docker folks interested by Irmin spent their time)

There are other places where you can find help on OCaml (#ocaml on freenode is 
a good one). We don't have special mentor/tutor channels as we think it is 
better if you follow the usual channels for open-source contributions. If you'd 
like we could also do a weekly sync -- I'll follow up with a private email 
about the process.
