We welcome participation from everyone and encourage you to join us, ask questions, and get involved.
All participation in the Apache Arrow DataFusion project is governed by the Apache Software Foundation’s code of conduct.
The vast majority of communication occurs in the open on our github repository in the form of tickets, issues, discussions, and Pull Requests.
Slack and Discord¶
We use the Slack and Discord platforms for informal discussions and coordination. These are great places to meet other contributors and get guidance on where to contribute. It is important to note that any technical designs and decisions are made fully in the open, on GitHub.
Most of us use the
#arrow-rust channels in the ASF Slack workspace .
Unfortunately, due to spammers, the ASF Slack workspace requires an invitation to join. To get an invitation,
request one in the
Arrow Rust channel of the Arrow Rust Discord server.
We also use arrow.apache.org’s
dev@ mailing list for release coordination and occasional design discussions. Other
than the the release process, most DataFusion mailing list traffic will link to a GitHub issue or PR for discussion.
When emailing the dev list, please make sure to prefix the subject line with a
[DataFusion] tag, e.g.
"[DataFusion] New API for remote data sources", so
that the appropriate people in the Apache Arrow community notice the message.
