Slack for Accumulo

Mike Walch-2
I would like to create a Slack chatroom for Accumulo and advertise it on on
our 'contact us' page [1] with an invite link to make it easy to join. Is
anyone opposed to this?  There will be no requirement that Accumulo users
or developers use Slack. We currently have an IRC chatroom but it's not
used much. I think Slack will be used more as it's simpler and saves the
latest history which helps if you join an ongoing discussion.  If it ends
up being rarely used over the next few months, I am OK with shutting it
down.

We did have a HipChat room, but we didn't advertise it well and nobody
really used it. With all that happened with HipChat being bought by
Atlassian and then sold off to Slack (or something like that), I'm not sure
where ASF Infra currently stands on providing chat as an ASF resource.

I have no objections to trying out Slack within the project. However, if
Infra does move towards something in future (like an official ASF Slack
group), we should try to follow whatever path they pave.

Regardless of whether Slack pans out, we should probably shut down the IRC
room... hardly anybody uses it, and the few that do are lurkers only or
bots. It doesn't make sense to continue to advertise it as a way for
users/devs to contact us.

Yeah, there are some Apache projects that use slack.  Can you create an
Accumulo channel at https://the-asf.slack.com?  I don't recall what I did
to set up my account there, but I did have to use my apache.org email
account.  The only thing I see from other communities is a small delay for
users since they need to be given access to the channel.

+1 to shutting down IRC.

Just made one -- I only saw Mike Wall on slack so far (invited him).

I am cool with an Accumulo channel on the-asf.slack.com.  I was able to
join easily using my apache email address.  How can users without an
apache.org email address join the 'the-asf' workspace? It would be nice to
put instructions for joining on our contact us page.

IIRC anybody who has an @a.o address can send invites.

Re: Slack for Accumulo

Mike Walch-2
From reading previous discussions on the ASF slack, it looks like it's OK
for everyone (users, contributors, etc) to join and an invite link can
posted on project websites. Apache Beam has one on their contact page:
https://beam.apache.org/community/contact-us/

I will create a pull request with something similar for the Accumulo
website.
