Regarding the package thing we have created a repo with @JosephGoulden and Joseph added the ubuntu snap there https://github.com/mimblewimble/packaging. Future work would be to find a way to automate this for each release or at the very least have a check list somewhere with all the tasks required. I'd be also in favor of adding choco, ubuntu and debian (apt) if possible though I'm not very familiar with the process.
@DavidBurkett I could definitely be convinced to move the meetings to keybase. Reason we've been reluctant to do it so far is that we've had a big group of people here and wouldn't want to make the meetings less visible, but perhaps it's time to start making a more serious effort to move over main comms over to Keybase?
Gitter is pretty awful. I read that their desktop/mobile apps were getting less frequent updates, so I started using it in the browser instead, but it's just as bad.
If I read the Keybase documentation correct, and if you've got Keybase installed, try running this from your terminal:
keybase chat join-channel grincoin '#dev'
keybase chat join-channel grincoin '#crypto'
Please report back if it works!
