Hi Paul,

For what is worth, I (relatively) regularly comment and post on
Reddit about Zephyr. On r/embedded to be precise, but also on other
subreddits.
Great to know, you must be <...> then ;-) (Well, nick is skipped for
privacy reasons).

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
Not sure if I get this, but I think you are suggesting we combine
both IRC and Slack. While I don't think that's the greatest of
situations to find ourselves in, I would have no problem using both
(I already do in fact). But then we'd need the devs to also frequent
the Slack channel, otherwise it'd be a bit pointless.
Right, and besides that "potentially pointless" situation (or more
specifically, depending on the goodwill of developers), there 2 other
choices: don't change anything, let it work like it worked for decades,
people who need will find their way on IRC. Or, forcibly move everyone
elsewhere.

I'm curious which route will be taken. But I'm sure that whichever
will, it will be for the greater good of the project.

Anyway, while that was the more controversial point in Anas' email, I
guess the most *important* is upcoming PR/patch process changes. So, I
guess I'll wait for more info on that part from now on. (But I do hope
that more people will cast their "votes" of IRC vs non-IRC matter yet.)
