Salt Community Resources

Join the Salt!

There are many ways to participate in and communicate with the Salt community.

Salt has an active IRC channel and a mailing list.

Mailing List

Join the salt-users mailing list. It is the best place to ask questions about Salt and see whats going on with Salt development! The Salt mailing list is hosted by Google Groups. It is open to new members.

Additionally, all users of Salt should be subscribed to the Announcements mailing list which contains important updates about Salt, such as new releaes and security-related announcements. This list is low-traffic.


The #salt IRC channel is hosted on the popular LiberaChat network. You can use the LiberaChat webchat client right from your browser. Logs of the IRC channel activity are also available.

If you wish to discuss the development of Salt itself join us in #salt-devel.
