The Backdrop CMS community uses a handful of tools for communication.
Backdrop has an official public Gitter channel that pairs nicely with the issue queue. Drop in and say hi at https://gitter.im/backdrop/backdrop-issues.
Discuss with the Backdrop community at the Backdrop CMS Community Forum.
Issue Queue: Github
The primary means of communication is the Backdrop Issue Queue, which is where all discussion happens around adding new features or fixing bugs. Backdrop also has a handful of other repositories and queues.
Backdrop has several recurring meetings on Thursdays you should feel free to join or watch at any time. There is a weekly core developer meeting, a fortnightly design meeting and a fortnightly outreach meeting. See our Google calendar for the schedule: [iCal feed]
