This page attempts to explain how the Redox OS community is organised and helps you navigate it. The headings are clickable to help you get to where you need to go.

We follow the Rust Code Of Conduct for rules in all community/chat channels.


We do our announcements on this Matrix room, it’s public and you don’t need to login on Matrix to read it.


Matrix is the official way to talk with Redox OS team and community (these rooms are English-only, we don’t accept other languages because we don’t understand them).

Matrix has several different clients. Element is a commonly used choice, it works on web browsers, Linux, MacOSX, Windows, Android and iOS.

If you have problems with Element, try nheko.

(We recommend that you leave the “Join Requests” room after your entry on Redox space)

If you want to have a big discussion in our rooms, you should use a Element thread, it’s more organized and easy to keep track if more discussions happen on the same room.

You cand find more information on this page.

Summer of Code

The Redox Summer of Code (RSoC) program runs annually when funding permits, and we may participate in other Summer of Code type programs. An overview of our Summer of Code programs and our plans for this year are here. Check out our RSoC Proposal Guide and Project Suggestions.


A slightly more formal way of communication with fellow Redox devs, but a little less quick and convenient like the chat. Submit an issue when you run into problems compiling or testing. Issues can also be used if you would like to discuss a certain topic: be it features, code style, code inconsistencies, minor changes and fixes, etc.

If you want to create an account, read this page.

If you have ready MRs (merge requests) you must send the links in the MRs room. To join this room, you will need to request an invite in the Join Requests room.

By sending a message in the room, your MR will not be forgotten or accumulate conflicts.

Spread the word

Community outreach is an important part of Redox’s success. If more people know about Redox, then more contributors are likely to step in, and everyone can benefit from their added expertise. You can make a difference by writing articles, talking to fellow OS enthusiasts, or looking for communities that would be interested in knowing more about Redox.
