Dear all

This seems more like a splinter/ elitist QGIS forum being formed here. Sorry if my observations are wrong but what are the aims of this new group which are different from the current group? Is it still affiliated to GISSA‎?

For those wanting to join the gitter QGIS chat room, you can go here:


You can also install the gitter desktop and mobile apps if you want to - visit the gitter home page for details.

If there is interest I could set up an osgeo africa one (sorry to usurp your Slack promulgation Jeff haha :-) ). The reason I don't like slack is that their subscription fees are terribly expensive - or at the least pretty confusing… https://slack.com/pricing whereas gitter is linked right into github which is nice and is free for public repos).

       Hi everybody,

       This list has been really quiet lately… I’m wondering why? Is it
       email is so last-century and we all moved over to Slack? If so,
       how do I
       join? If not, isn’t it time to set up a Team or a channel on a
       team like
       ZA Tech?
