Created New Community Chat Rooms with ECC Slack Integrations


#1

Hi Everyone!

As part of our goal to be more open and transparent to the community, we’ve created two new Zcash community chat rooms you might be interested in. The arborist-team room is integrated directly with the internal Slack channel ECC engineers use to discuss ongoing work on zcashd, lightwalletd, librustzcash and protocol upgrades. In addition, the wallet-team room is integrated directly with the internal Slack channel that the ECC wallet team uses to discuss ongoing work on the Zcash reference wallet. Due to some Slack/Rocket.Chat integration limitations, we couldn’t link the Slack room to the reference-wallet channel, so we have retired this channel in the community chat in favor of the more generically named wallet-team channel. Our goal is to streamline communications so ECC engineers are more likely to communicate in a public forum about the projects most important to you. Please jump into those rooms if you’re interested and let me know if you have any questions!

Edited this post on 4/9/19 to reflect the channel name change due to the team name change to Arborist.

Are these the only new channels created/changed lately? We will need to update the landing page to reflect these channel changes: https://chat.zcashcommunity.com/home

Today I also noticed that we’re retiring the old zcashd-team channel in the community chat as a result of creating the public-arborist-team channel, but other than that, those are the only changes I know of. However, I don’t know what non-ECC community chat admins may have done so I can’t vouch for any lack of changes by non-ECC entities. I hope that’s at least somewhat helpful!

There has been feedback on how best to name these channels. As a result we’ve renamed the community chat channel to arborist-team. I’ve edited the original post to reflect that.

This is getting confusing, once all the channels have been renamed that you want to change (including the private-dev-chat) let me know and I will update the landing page.

I agree it was confusing and I apologize for the confusion. We are done making channel name changes.
