I set it 'private', but I think that means anyone in this room can join

@cgnieder
@vermiculus yet another chat room? yet another place to discuss? :(
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@cgnieder You wanted a subforum :P
That emoticon is far jollier than I intended it to be.
The channel is still owned by this room.
I'm frankly not seeing the difference between a new channel here and a new forum there.
(Except my usability notes, which I'm hesitant to post now because I'm not sure where you want them.)

@cgnieder
@vermiculus I don't want one, I want ten, twenty, … and one place which is like a table of contents so I can quickly see all open topics to be discussed :)

@vermiculus
@cgnieder There's a way to list channels under a room in the API – I'm sure there's an implementation of that here.
I've asked on Twitter.

@vermiculus »well known« was the wrong wording: as far as I know it's the best maintained and developed forum software for WP I've come across so far. I'm not trying to convince you anymore, though :) You don't like forums for discussion, I don't like chats. I've made my point clear and you yours so let's wait what others have to say and then the majority decides.

@cgnieder probably best :)

As Barbara Beeton was one of the first users i came across taking an interest in improving the current situation (templates and get users started easily) many months ago, i'd really like to hear her input. As far as i know, she wanted to have the discussion in Darmstadt first, taking all needed measures afterwards. Somehow, the whole deal got a bit out of hand too quickly and hence went chaotic. I suggest to pace ourselves, defer all serious discussion (best preactice, licensing, finding a nomenclature etc.) till everything is set up. For me, this is a project i take seriously and there is no use in starting off quickly and fading away.

@johannesbottcher Sounds wise. I really wish I could have gone to Darmstadt!

I guess we all realize, that the whole thing will be a never ending story. The current situation has a long tradition, we have to introduce changes bit by bit anyway.

@Sean How can i permalink one specific comment?
Sean Allred
@vermiculus
@johannesbottcher Click the time
That changes the URL

@johannesbottcher
@vermiculus Thanks, i did not notice the url changing :- )

@vermiculus
@johannesbottcher Easy to miss – it's something gitter could do better (though I have no useful suggestions for how) :)

I suggest to pace ourselves, defer all serious discussion (best practice, licensing, finding a nomenclature etc.) till everything is set up. For me, this is a project i take seriously and there is no use in starting off quickly and fading away.

Should this preclude opening questions (e.g. #2, #3)? I kinda acted before I thought with those, though I do think having ready questions to pick from for conversation is useful.
