Thanks @mtwo! Currently every GH org member is a Gitter admin and every Gitter admin is a room admin who, in turn, can delete the room, edit permissions, ban people and the like. We could (and probably should) switch the permission setting to make only specific people Gitter admins so that accidents like these are less likely to happen in future :)
@arminru good to know that is possible!
is anyone from Elastic APM involved in opentelemetry?
@arminru done! I didn't know that was possible on Gitter yet
@bhs@bogdandrutu@SergeyKanzhelev I made you admins
didn't add sarah as I don't think that she subs here and I've forgotten her github handle
Yeah I didn't want to believe there was no option to prevent room purging by everyone in the org so I clicked around a bit :smile: Thanks Morgan!
