Please first read the docs, the existing issue tracker issues and mailing list posts -- a lot of stuff is already documented / explained / discussed / filed there.

Documentation

We have quite nice docs including:

  • installation

  • reference of borg commands

  • examples and a FAQ

  • internals docs

  • docs for developers

Issue Tracker

If you've found a bug or have a concrete feature request, please create a new ticket on the project's issue tracker.

For more general questions or discussions, IRC or mailing list are preferred.

Chat (IRC)

Join us on channel #borgbackup on chat.freenode.net.

As usual on IRC, just ask or tell directly and then patiently wait for replies. Stay connected.

Using a IRC client and a registered nick is the preferred way to use our channel.

In times of high spammer activity, the registered nick might be even required to join our channel.

You could use the following link (after connecting, you can change the random nickname you get by typing "/nick mydesirednickname") - you might still need a registered nick to join our channel (see above):

Mailing list

To find out about the mailing list, its topic, how to subscribe, how to unsubscribe and where you can find the archives of the list, see the mailing list homepage.

Twitter

Follow @borgbackup for announcements. You can also add @borgbackup if you would like to get retweeted for a borg related tweet.

Please understand that Twitter is not suitable for longer / more complex discussions - use one of the other channels for that.

Donations, Bounties and Fundraisers
