FoxtrotGPS users and developers are invited to collaborate via the foss-gps list provided by OSGeo.
Yes, there is! It's #FoxtrotGPS on the freenode network.

The FoxtrotGPS project is still in a relatively early stage of community-building, which means establishing a sense of focus where previously there may not have been any. Many contributors are still just now learning the tools and conventions used on the project, and all of the contributors are still learning each others' personalities. The key elements of communication and collaboration for a FOSS project at this stage of development are:
In time, all of the tools mentioned in the above question may become useful; in the interim, we're trying to avoid an overabundance of communications-channels and `extra features' that would actually likely increase distraction and interfere with focus. Hence our initial `minimalism'.
Patches--and discussions about patches--are welcome on the foss-gps e-mail list.
Please file bugs in the FoxtrotGPS bug-tracker. The foss-gps e-mail list is also a good place to discuss them.
Yes! We are accepting translation patches as well. With in-development source code being publicly available between releases, it's possible to have FoxtrotGPS be fully translated at each release. Please help us with this!
For the time being, please bring your translation patches to the foss-gps e-mail list.
Hardware support is provided by GPSd so FoxtrotGPS will work with any of the hardware supported by GPSd.
