I'm not using Slack, right now it gives the impression of being
'semi-official', as it's not mentioned neither in the Community
menu of the site, but I was told that discussions are productive
and positive over there.
Maybe, it's because it's 'semi official', so, what about keeping
it 'invite only', but provide a read-only view of the best
channels? For sure it's a net increment of positivity.
I've also suggested to improve periodic reports around the status
of specific work topics: something like the ones provided for
SAOC, see the FreeBSD periodic status reports  provided by
workgroups. Yes dub, I'm looking at you!
As a final point, I also suggested some days ago to add some
features, like locking a thread, to the forum interface only.
