Conversation highlights include:

On Slack

I have concerns about the openness properties of Slack as implemented by Apereo. You can’t access it or read its logs anonymously; it’s not Google search indexed. Only the most recent ten thousand messages are available, so in practice this means logs are unavailable older than about a month back.

Summarizing the conversations in this anonymously, publicly accessible and Google indexable context somewhat mitigates these problems. But not necessarily other problems that make email list communications preferable in open source projects.

Arguably, all of the conversations held in the #uportal Slack channel this month could have been held via email on uportal-dev@ or uportal-user@ email lists additionally or instead. Some relevant email list threads are linked above.
