Subject Re: Retiring Airflow Gitter?
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2018 17:53:37 GMT
I'm in favor of (yet another) slack. It will probably improve community
growth and development, not just support searchable answers. I think
nonprofits have an easy time getting permanent message retention for free
but that would be an issue if that was not possible for Airflow. The
default free account does not have permanent message retention (last I
checked).
