From Mahara Wiki
- You can subscribe to the master branch on Launchpad to receive an email everytime a commit is made. There is also an RSS feed of commits if you prefer to receive information that way.
- #mahara-dev on freenode (irc.freenode.org) is an IRC channel where the core developers discuss the development of Mahara. This channel is not for support of Mahara (use #mahara instead), but you can lurk and listen in on developer conversations - and even hear about the latest new features as they're added ;)
