Subject Re: Slack

Hi,

Having a "pro" slack subscription will defiantly help projects that are
using it.

Also, Slack can integrate with the mailing list, for example using this app
https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/206819278-Send-emails-to-Slack, I
think that if nothing else, this can be seen as another form of a mail
client, from a "pure" mailing list point of view.

Cheers,
Yaniv
