Subject Re: Apache Spark chat channel

Yes this come up once in a while. There's no need or way to stop people
forming groups to chat, though blessing a new channel as 'official' is
tough because it means, in theory, everyone has to follow another channel
to see 100% of the discussion. I think that's why the couple of mailing
lists, which can be controlled and archived by the ASF, will stay the
official channels. But, naturally there's no problem with people forming
unofficial communities.
