About the Community

Whether you're running or writing a framework, or hacking the core, there are opportunities for you to get in touch and ask questions, get involved locally, and contribute back.

Local User Groups

Mesos User Groups organize local Mesos events in different cities. Join one in your city, or learn how to start your own.


Report or track a bug

New bugs can be reported on our issue tracker. In order to create a new issue, you'll need to signup for an account. See the guidelines here.

Contribute a patch

Mesos relies on its community to test releases, find bugs, contribute fixes and features, and provide feedback on existing APIs. Your contributions are greatly appreciated! Since the infrastructure that the Mesos community uses day-to-day (ReviewBoard and JIRA) is unfamiliar to some, we also provide a beginner contribution guide which will help you get started using only GitHub.

Is this your first time contributing? See our beginner contribution guide. Thanks! We love patches. :)

Working Groups

As the community has scaled, we work on larger and more involved features and components in separate interest or working groups. By joining working groups, you will be able to get in touch with the stakeholders, contributors and committers interested in certain features for Mesos.

A working group is a group of people who are interested in actively participating in specific area of the project. Below are some of the expectations from a working group:

  • Should have at least one lead who is responsible for organizing and driving the work group meetings.
  • Should have regular (online) meetings that are open to public, recorded and archived.
  • Should maintain meeting notes that are shared with the dev@mesos.apache.org list regularly.
  • Should have a corresponding slack channel (also publicly archived) where synchronous discussions take place.

You Tube Channel

Past meetings should be posted to the YouTube Channel.

Working Group Mailing List

Please use the dev@mesos.apache.org list for discussions. We don’t use separate mailing lists for each working group. In order to distinguish emails for a specific working group, please tag the email subject with the working group name like the following:
