Subject Re: Slack support?
Date Wed, 29 Mar 2017 14:44:38 GMT
I apologize in advance for muddying the waters here with yet ANOTHER
external tool suggestion, but I'd like to point out the existence of Quip.
It's virtually identical to Slack in capabilities and look-and-feel, but
also includes google-doc style docs and a Confluence-style collaborative
environment.  The docs are especially suited for software development since
you can embed code examples with automatic syntax highlighting.  I was
skeptical at first, but I've been using it for a couple of months, and it's
a REALLY easy tool to use (WAY easier than Confluence which is annoyingly
buggy).  I was skeptical about yet another chat tool, but it really is a
nice overall collaborative environment.

Quip is now owned by Salesforce which donates 1% of it's profits through
free licensing/hosting of its products to non-profit organizations.  I'm
confident that we could get free hosting for Apache.  And it really is an
awesome product IMHO.
