The Fedora {COMMBLOG}[Community Blog] is a key component to CommOps. An account gives permissions to view article drafts and previews before they are published. If you ever write an article, you will need an account. To register, log in at the {COMMBLOG}/wp-login.php[login page] with your Fedora Account System (FAS) credentials.
Need more help logging in? Read the {COMMBLOG}/how-to-log-in/[help page] for more detailed instructions.
Join our IRC channel
Fedora uses the https://libera.chat/[Libera.chat IRC network] for instant messaging and communication. Short discussions and planning happen in our IRC channel #fedora-commops. Our monthly team meetings also take place on IRC.
Never used IRC before? See the https://fedoramagazine.org/beginners-guide-irc/[Beginner's Guide to IRC] on the Fedora Magazine. Additionally, you can connect temporarily in a chat session in your browser via https://web.libera.chat/[Libera.chat web chat]. However, if you want to stay connected even when you are not online, consider https://opensource.com/article/17/5/introducing-riot-IRC[using Riot] as your IRC client.
For convenience, the IRC channel is bridged to a Telegram group, https://t.me/fedoracommops[@fedoracommops]. You may also participate via the Telegram group, but you are unable to use or interact with IRC bots (e.g. in meetings). Join the group at https://t.me/fedoracommops[t.me/fedoracommops].
