A global team-work effort
NOMAGIC does not directly support or maintain the different open source applications instantiated on our servers. We install, update and monitor the applications, that’s it really.
That said, we will try to resolve any bug or issues raised, potentially making you part of the resolution process. All open source projects have points of contact to raise issues regarding the product (mailing lists, github/gitlab/gogs pages, forums, etc), and usually those are open to anyone.
In order to receive technical assistance from NOMAGIC, it shall be advisable to apply the following procedure of escalation for anything else than a security issue:
- First off, please ensure you are using an updated Operating System and a recent Web browser. Firefox is recommended for best results. Also make sure you Internet connection is fully working.
- If you cannot access a service at all, consult our services status page. The service migth be under maintenance or already identified as unavailable.
- Consult available documentation on the wiki. The wiki contains limited information on the available applications as well as some guides to set up external application to connect to our services (ex: Desktop tools like Thunderbird or Android applications like DAV-Droid). The FAQ will also be implemented there.
- Consult available documentation on the official Web service’s application website. All applications are Free and Open Source applications, built and developed by different teams / organisations / companies. They all come with official documentation, and often with forum and/or ticket system (Github/Gitlab repository management platforms provide dedicated pages where issues can be submitted.
- Use the Nomagic forum, dedicated to support. You can log in using your usual username/password. The forum is public, so make sure to not leak any information that should not be made public. The forum is an ideal centralised point for users to be able to ask and possible answer questions of other users. Always do a quick search of your issue using keywords before opening a new thread to avoid duplicates.
- If it is a security issue or involve sensitive/personal content, please contact the Service Provider at firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is only accessible for users, which means you will need to use your NOMAGIC email address to send the email.
- If the assistance includes private information and requires coordinated assistance, please send an email to support with as much detail as you can regarding the issue without disclosing private information like your password. After reviewing your email, if further assistance is required we will need a way to contact you (telephone number or XMPP JID) at a specific time and date available to both parties to troubleshoot in cooperation. Please note that this is on a best-effort basis by the Service Provider, and that this is reserved for issues with accessing the services. Please also note that if the problem cannot be reproduced on the Service Provider’s end (meaning the problem is not on the server side), no further assistance is to be expected from the Service Provider.
- In case of an unavailability of all our support sources, chances are that we are aware of the issue ;-) Please refer to our services status page to have a better idea on the current status of the platform. Maintenances shall be announced beforehand by email, and will also show on the status page. The current status of services is also visible from the bottom of each of the website pages, with a direct link towards the service status website. You will also be notified by email after resolution of a service interruption.
