MicroProfile/Giiter

Gitter.im chat rooms

We use Gitter.im for chat communication related to individual working groups. Each Github repository can have a Gitter room associated with it to discuss work related to that repository.

Each repository with an associated Gitter room should contain a Gitter badge with a link to the chat room in its README file.

Public history of communication on Gitter

All the chat communication is recorded by Gitter and publicly available without any need for a Gitter account. For example, the history for top-level MicroProfile API chat is available here: https://gitter.im/eclipse/microprofile-bom
