Welcome to Sakai!
This system, Confluence, is a wiki used to coordinate activities and share information within the Sakai community. Confluence was selected for this purpose as it is tightly integrated with Jira, the issue tracking system used to coordinate design and development activities in Sakai. The community also uses an instance of Sakai to facilitate collaboration, known as Collab (http://collab.sakaiproject.org).
There are a number of community email lists on Collab, however, it is highly recommend that anyone with an interest in Sakai join the Announcements list (firstname.lastname@example.org). This a very low-volume, read-only list, with only a message or two per week. Typical content includes the twice-a-month Sakai Newsletter, official release announcements, conference information and calls for presentation proposals, Sakai-related job postings, and other items of broad community interest.
Listed below are a few broad areas of community activity that are of general interest to a wide audience. These areas represent good starting points for learning more about or engaging in the Sakai community. A more comprehensive list of community activities can be found in the Directory. Most community activities have a presence on both Confluence and Collab; using the later mainly to support groups' email lists.
