Subject [jira] [Updated] (INFRA-17173) Install slack auto-inviter for the-asf slack (make the-asf slack more public)
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 11:16:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-17173?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Elek, Marton updated INFRA-17173:
---------------------------------
    Description: 
TLDR: I propose to install a small application to make it easier to request slack invites
by new contributors.

MOTIVATION:

I would like to provide help for new contributors in a more informal way (debug the install
together, check problems, etc.). the-asf slack channel seems to be ideal place but there is
no easy way to join to this one.

GOAL:

I propose to install slackin similar to http://slack.kubernetes.io/

https://github.com/rauchg/slackin
http://slack.kubernetes.io/

QUESTION:

What can I help to achieve this goal?

Slackin is a nodejs application and can be run  in docker. It requires:

1.) An api token from a slack inviter user (should be admin AFAIK)
2.) google captcha credentials.

It's not clear for me how this kind of applications could be run in the asf infra. I would
be happy to work on any technical aspect or available to calls in any time zone if it could
help.

mew: Is this slack open for every contributors? How is it possible to join without  apache
email address? Is there any invitation service similar to http://slack.kubernetes.io/? (If
not, can I install one?)

Sorry, maybe it's too many questions together.

Hi Marton. The slack is open for everyone (users, contributors, committers etc). Many projects
post a link on how join (e.g. Beam at https://beam.apache.org/community/contact-us/) but I
gather those links expire, and it is fairly common people write to user@project asking for
an invitation.  It would be good that a Google search for “Apache Slack Join” found a
page that summarised the use of Slack across the projects - I haven’t been able to find
one just now.

Marton Elek [5:13 PM]
Thank you very much. Appreciate your answers. I would be happy to volunteer on an auto-invite
system (get an invite with a form like http://slack.k8s.io/) if you think it's useful.
For example the invite link on the mentioned beam site is not working any more...
