Community

Prometheus is developed in the open. Here are some of the channels we use to communicate and contribute:

IRC: #prometheus on irc.freenode.net (for the easiest start, join via Riot)

Twitter: @PrometheusIO

Issue tracker: Use the GitHub issue tracker for the various Prometheus repositories to file bugs and features request. If you need support, please send your questions to the prometheus-users mailing list rather than filing a GitHub issue.

Please do not ask individual project members for support. Use the channels above instead, where the whole community can help you and benefit from the solutions provided. If community support is insufficient for your situation, please refer to the Commercial Support section below.

Contributing

We welcome community contributions! Please see the CONTRIBUTING.md file in the respective Prometheus repository for instructions on how to submit changes. If you are planning on making more elaborate or controversial changes, please discuss them on the mailing list before sending a pull request.
