Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Slack team for Apache NiFi
Date Tue, 11 Oct 2016 02:28:24 GMT
Matt,

I don't want to sound too old school but I not sure the use of slack is a
good idea:

At least one ASF project that has decided to move away from Gitter:
https://www.mail-archive.com/dev@airflow.incubator.apache.org/msg00901.html

Apparently there are issues around accessibility:

https://www.marcozehe.de/2016/01/16/status-of-the-accessibility-of-slack/


Some people seem to explicit oppose the idea:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/03/17/no_slack_for_open_sourcers/


And some point to a handy reminder of the risks associated with similar
moves...

Having said that, happy to work with whatever people prefer.


Cheers
