After Amber’s talk today at ZeekWeek I thought I’d pitch in some ideas to help build the
I think there are a few types of interaction the community has, there may be others:
* Asking questions
* Reporting bugs
* Announcing things
Asking questions - We could use some form of group instant messenger or more of a forum
style platform. Group instant messengers include Slack, Discord, Rocket chat, Discourse
etc. The key thing is to make barrier to entry low, while I use IRC it’s not exactly user
friendly. Forum style platforms include Stackexchange, Discourse etc. – I see these as
replacements for the Mailing list which may find difficult to use, search etc.
Reporting bug – I guess we should be using GitHub to report the actual bug but normally
you need troubleshoot by asking questions or chatting.
Announcing things – Perhaps some sort of distribution list that you subscribe to? Or
perhaps just pinning topics on the forum platform?
From what I’ve looked at so far Discourse looks pretty good and for open source projects
you can apply for free hosting:
What do you think? Any more thoughts?

Subject: Re: [Zeek] Communication channels
I’ll research some options and ask for the LT to review at the next meeting.
Please continue to add your your thoughts.

Agree. While giphy integration is a good time killer, I am far more interested in modern
amenities such as threads and history. I presume Matrix would get us there or could be
close with some pull requests.

I don't use the IRC channel but I would lurk in a Zeek Slack channel.
Please choose an open standard rather than a walled garden. Someone above suggested Matrix
as a possibility.
