Multipass' community is slowly growing and if you're reading this, there's a good chance you're ready to join it. So... welcome!
Now we'll answer both what the community can do for you and what you can do for the community.
Code of Conduct
Our Code of Conduct is a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the communities in which we participate.
What You Can Do
Help Fellow Users
Direct involvement in the project is not the only form of contribution to the Multiplass community. Answering a question for a fellow Multipass user on our Github Discussions Forum is also considered a valuable contribution.
If you are a core member, you can help tremendously by answering questions in the public repo and move them to the issues in the main one or discuss them on a meeting.
The more people we have answering questions, the more time we can spend on improving Multipass and working on the right things.
Help Triage Issues
Triaging an issue means gathering missing information, running the reproduction, verifying the issue's validity, and investigating the cause of the issue.
We will receive many issues in our public repository on GitHub. Our bandwidth is limited compared to the amount of users we have, so issue triaging alone can take an enormous amount of effort from the team. By helping us triage the issues, you are helping us become more efficient, allowing us to spend time on higher priority work.
You don't have to triage an issue with the goal of fixing it (although that would be nice too). Sharing the result of your investigation, for example the commit that led to the bug, can already save us a ton of time.

Share (and Build) Your Experience
Apart from answering questions and sharing resources in the forum and chat, there are a few other less obvious ways to share and expand what you know:
- Develop learning materials. It's often said that the best way to learn is to teach. If there's something interesting you're doing with Multipass, strengthen your expertise by writing a blog post, developing a workshop, or even publishing a screenshot of how you use Multipass that you share on social media. Keep in mind to hide any sensitive information.
- Watch the public repo. This will send you notifications whenever there's activity in that repository, giving you insider knowledge about ongoing discussions and upcoming features. It's a fantastic way to build expertise so that you're eventually able to help address issues.
I hope that right now, you're reading this sentence in your preferred language. If not, would you like to help us get there? If so, for now send Veerle a note that you would like to help.
