I use slack most days and I am fine with it in a commercial setting if
my clients use it however I will not be joining an RTEMS slack group and
do not support creating an official channel.

I am happy with IRC and prefer it for open source projects like RTEMS
where the channel is open and we can make the logs public. I hope we do
not fragment what we have.
