Love that argument. So, perhaps we shouldn't look for easy ways and
embrace diversity in general, and look for WeChat that you
mentioned or QQ?
This sentence is hard to parse, but I suspect you (and Flavio) have
both missed my point, which was that if you're talking about
"everyone's" favorite chat clients by raw number of users, IRC
integration is basically non-existent. So claiming that as a plus
seems bogus.
I personally never talked about "favorite chat clients" or something. I
just calmly use mine, based on the projects' requirements, and those
requirements for last 10-15 years were consistent - IRC (so yes, I
had to acquire my favorite IRC client, etc.). Now requirements seem to
change, so I'm just trying to understand why, and make sure that if
change is made, no improvement opportunities are missed or hasty
decisions are made, like trading "east" for "west", etc.


The more dissemination we have, the better. Just randomly searched
for "zephyr rtos" (no hope for just "zephyr") on Reddit, and
disappointedly, #1 hit is still the post for 1.9 release I made a
year ago. If we can't make semi-regular posts on popular IT crowd
sites like Reddit, let's at least create a Slack channel. Or can do
both actually. Or all of them:

1. Development channel on IRC
2. I believe there is/was something like #zephyr-bluetooth on IRC
too. I never understood why, but I heard there was.
3. Slack channel.
4. Reddit subreddit
... more
So "do all the things"?
Yes, and weekly summaries of Zephyr changes too. Why not?

For one, I hope there won't be external directives where to go,
especially represented as a "community decision". (Note that I
personally happy to follow any project requirements, especially if
it's clear where they originate from and what are their purpose.)

but I think we
ought to be honest with ourselves that this is really what we are
arguing about.

Since you deleted most of the rest of the context in this thread so
far, I'm not sure what including the above followed by "[]" means.
That's easy: "[]" is a common placeholder for deleted text; there was
a complaint that quoting of the thread was broken, moreover I don't
think that every participant of such threads should comment every
point of other participants, a couple of important is enough, or
discussion get unwieldy. Finally, I really appreciate your call to be
honest with ourselves of what we're arguing about, so I tried to say in
fair manner what I think about these matters.
