When using or contributing to ShardingSphere, if you encounter any problem, or you have any suggestions or new ideas, you can use the Apache mailing-list to participate in the community building, or join the ShardingSphere Slack channel to connect with other community members.

To join the mailing list:

  1. Send an e-mail to subscribe. Use your mailbox to send an e-mail to dev-subscribe@shardingsphere.apache.org with any subject or content.

  2. Receive and reply the confirmation e-mail. After Step 1, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from dev-help@shardingsphere.apache.org (if you have not received the email, please check “RSS feeds”, “junk e-mail” or other items). Reply to that e-mail directly or click the link in the e-mail to reply, with any subject or content.

  3. Receive the welcome e-mail. After finishing the two steps above, an e-mail with the subject of WELCOME to dev@shardingsphere.apache.org will be sent to your e-mail address. You’ll have then succeeded in subscribing to the Apache ShardingSphere mailing-list.

  4. You now can interact with community by your subscribed email or track email conversations by Archived email list or Slack.
