This page is only offering complimentary informations


This document exists to assist people to get up and running as fast as possible when starting with the project. As onboarding a project tends to happen only once, it is imperative that you let someone know of anything incorrect and out of date during your onboarding process.

Main door for project

A good way to get started is to look at the project documentation and try to improve it,
by submitting issues and/or share patches to git lab:

Other complementary information can be found at following location:

Setup checklist


Day to day communication is via IRC check how to join team at:

Optionally Alternatively OSTC also uses this mattermost instance at:


You will need to set up 2FA. I found that process fairly straight forward. Set up Authy on your phone (F-droid’s OTP) , etc.

You aren’t automatically subscribed to all channels right away and I found the Mattermost UI a bit confusing as to finding additional channels to join. It’s wasn’t entirely clear how to find them unless you know the name. The + button on the right of the Find channel textbox will allow you to browse all the channels.

Please use thread (you need to press reply arrow) to answer someone then we know messages are belonging to an existing context which can be read again later.

Collapsible threading is not turned on by default and without it, especially busy channels can be overwhelming. You can (and should) turn it on via:

Account Settings → Display → Collapsed Reply Threads (Beta)

There is a help channel that people monitor if you run into issues during onboarding.


We’re sharing our daily activities in this channel:

TODO: Who is responsible for adding people to locked channels, etc

Legacy / Obsolete info

This chapter is now outdated, it’s only there for the record.

You might NOT need to sign up for the “legacy” OSTC Gitlab instance, but if you’re signing up, you’ll need to get access rights to do some of the basic things like edit wikis etc. I’m still working my way through this, trying to figure out which repos I should/need access to.

For access requests go to IT channel:
