Subject Re: [LAZY] Letting anyone invite on Slack
Date Sat, 14 Oct 2017 06:06:51 GMT
Hi Henri,

We tried to use slack with the Juneau project and never got it to work "the Apache Way". Inviting
people instead of self-service, no ability to monitor discussions, no archive of discussions.

We gave up and now use the wiki whenever mail doesn't serve. Common editing of documents,
diagrams, etc. are all easily done on confluence where email doesn't allow sharing documents.

I frankly do not see slack filling a need here.
