IRC Channel

As of Nov 16, 2020 the Fluid Project has switched to Matrix for our collaborative discussion channel. Please see Matrix Channel for more information.

The Fluid and GPII teams use Internet Relay Chat (IRC) for collaborative discussions. Anyone interested in the project is welcome to join the channel and participate in the discussions.

 Slack, Mattermost, Gitter and other chat platforms

The Fluid community has considered migrating to newer chat platforms but every time the general opinion has been that they are not as accessible as IRC or only offer features we depend on (e.g. public records) for paid users. A consensus on this topic has never been reached.
