MacPorts has an official IRC channel on the Libera.Chat network. Join developers, power users and fellow-travelers in

Note that the users on IRC are dispersed across multiple timezones around the globe and might have day jobs, so don't get frustrated and leave if nobody answers right away. Hanging around and waiting a couple of hours will usually get you an answer. And if it doesn't, there still are our mailing lists.


As a more modern alternative, the same channel is also bridged with a bot to an instance of RocketChat on You can register and login to this service with your GitHub account. The service can either be used in your browser or with the RocketChat desktop app that is available in the Mac App Store or as a direct download.
