We've thought about gitter as well, personally my (slight) preference for
Slack is that it does not require a GH account, and also, there is a nice
OSS heroku app that provides a really nice "self-invite" button that shows
how many users are on, too. You can see it on our test docs deploy:

That said it is probably six of one, half dozen of the other. I'm not
categorically opposed to looking into gitter some more.

My hope (and intent) is really to have this as a place for users to
congregate and self-support. We do intend to monitor, to the extent we can,
but like you there is precious little bandwidth form core devs.

any interest in a #matplotlib channel there? If there is a better place to
submit this proposal, please let me know.

Not sure, I've not personally set anything up.
