That may be so but I’m seeing stuff like this. Email on upcoming release [1] points to GitHub
[2] points to Slack [3]

In order to view [3] you need to create an account and log into slack. Now I don’t think
this is a graduation issue, but the PMC might want to consider how they bring information
back from slack rather than link to it. I assume at some point the information behind that
link would be lost (free tier right?).

I’ll note the slack page also says "If you have an,,,,, or email address, you can create an account.” what
if you don’t have one of those accounts? While a committer will have an apache account,
a contributor is not likely to have any of those. (They could find this [4] and sign up).
Seems like a barrier to entry I think.
