The Haiku community is composed of both individuals and groups of people that assist directly or indirectly the development and promotion of Haiku. This section is intended to give information about the Haiku community itself, as well as other communities surrounding the Haiku project.
The primary means of communication are through mailing lists and are generally hosted by FreeLists. In addition to the mailing lists (often referred to as 'ML'), numerous users and contributors frequent IRC ( irc.freenode.net#haiku). There is also BeShare, an online chat and file sharing application.
