Subject Re: RFC CouchDB Slack channel
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2017 20:53:40 GMT
FWIW, Slack allows per channel disabling of search.

This would negate the benefit of a more accessible problem/solution 
archive, but I feel StackOverflow has taken that on anyway, so I
wouldn’t object to make use of that switch, if it makes this
proposal more inclusive.

Best
Jan
