Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move Slack discussions to ASF official slack?
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2017 03:19:45 GMT
Users will likely be confused if they have to switch Slack instances. We switched over to ASF
mailing lists over a year ago and we still get requests to join the old pre-ASF user mailing
list sometimes.

Unfortunately the Slack-In inviter bot doesn’t allow you to invite people to a particular
room without a paid account. It has to go to the default room for the whole instance. Maybe
we could ask Slack if it’s possible to get an exception for the ASF.

That said, if it’s not strictly better than what we have then I don’t see a real benefit
in switching.

email addresses, you can invite them all at once as a comma-separated list.

just come by a link from our website. A good portion of our traffic is users, rather than
developers, and by-and-large they don't have apache.org addresses. If we closed the Slack
off to them I think we'd lose a lot of the benefit.
