that’s *exactly* what OARC is doing. It’s not rolling “own” platform, it’s using existing platform that many existing teams are using as a communication platform. The added requirement for choosing a chat platform was a strong data protection. This is something that centralized platform (like Slack) can’t offer. Mattermost is a solid competitor on the market and I am glad that OARC moved away from Jabber both as a board member and OARC member.
