[phpMyAdmin Developers] Slack channel for phpmyadmin

I wouldn’t go Discord on this one, the main feature for Discord is (in my opinion) the voice chat, which I don’t think it’ll help.

I’ve been part of the mailing list for years and having Slack would be a great addition, specially for tracking progress and communicating with the GSoC students, I wouldn’t like to replace the mailing list with Slack though.

As for the invitation only, we can just place a link to it wherever, that person would be asked for an email address and that’s it.

A good alternative to Slack would be Gitter [0]. Another would be the Discord app [1].

Why exactly is it better?

I've just quickly tried that. What surprised me most is that it's
invite only. Is there some way to allow people to join without inviting
them first? This really sounds ridiculous for free software project...

There seems to be something what they call "Guest Accounts". I have no
clue how that works, but that is available only in paid plans.

Also is there way to make the archives publicly available?
