Get Involved
If you are interested in helping with @Google Chat, here are some good ways to get started:

  • Spread the word. Too many people don't realize what we can do with Google Chat in Drupal. Share with your local community.
  • Become a co-maintainer. While @google-chat is actively maintained, it would be great to have more people involved, especially people with a demonstrated ability to do some of the above.

If you are reporting an issue please make sure to give as much information as possible so I can re-produce the issue.
