Subject Re: Gitter chat room for Spark
Date Fri, 17 Apr 2015 08:38:12 GMT
There are N chat options out there, and of course there's no need or
way to stop people from using them. If 1 is blessed as 'best', it
excludes others who prefer a different one. Tomorrow there will be a
New Best Chat App. If a bunch are blessed, the conversation fractures.

There's also a principle that important-ish discussions should take
place on official project discussion forums, i.e., the mailing lists.
Chat is just chat but sometimes discussions appropriate to the list
happen there.

For this reason I've always thought it best to punt on official-ish
chat and let it happen organically as it will, with a request to port
any important discussions to the list.
