Subject Re: Incubator chat on Hipchat?
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2016 01:32:57 GMT
For the NetBeans community we had been using IRC, but then setup Slack, and
it has seen an uptick over IRC which per logging and notifications had been
harder to support and stay connected. We setup a sign up bot at, and we also have a chat room hooked/bridged
to our IRC channel, so we service both as a collective; good on mobiles
too. We have as an item to talk to Slack about OSS and limits/restrictions.

We don't intend it to replace mailing lists, Jira, nor the wiki, but look
at it as dynamic chats and community building allowing to have hack, help,
or real time hang time sessions. We didn't know about the Apache HipChat,
but I must confess I much prefer Slack having used both during my day job.
