Subject Re: [LAZY] Letting anyone invite on Slack
Date Sat, 14 Oct 2017 12:03:50 GMT
We do this with ours:

The Slack guys are the ones who even told us to. There is no theoretical
limit according to them. You just have to manage the outstanding invites,
and clean them up if there are a bunch where folks did not finish out the
process. If you do not, then invites won't work until you do after some
critical mass.

We also use a bot to do this, which the Slack folks recommended us do:

There are probably some OSS bots ASF could use to do this and other things
for such systems to keep full data logs inside ASF; own the data forever.

We also have a channel linked to our IRC channel where we can monitor and
help with it from Slack.

Anyways, it all seems to work great so far.

Currently only 'admins' can invite people to the ASF Slack:

If we view it as an IRC equivalent, having to invite people at all is
weird. We can, via a checkbox, change it so anyone on the ASF Slack (except
'guests') can invite someone to the Slack workspace:



Choose whether to allow non-admins to invite new people to *ASF*.

 Allow everyone (except guests) to invite new members.

I can't see why we'd have an issue there, so I'm planning to turn that
checkbox on at the end of next week (Thursday or whenever I remember to
after that :) ).

If this is a bad idea, please object and let me know why :)
