[swift-corelibs-dev] Informal Chat Medium

I've also found the SwiftPM Slack extremely useful and friendly.
Having something similar for corelibs-foundation is a good idea and I
would certainly join it.

Maybe we could start a #corelibs-foundation channel on the SwiftPM
Slack, as an experiment?  If it's useful, over time the SwiftPM Slack
could become a "swift.org" Slack.

I see this as separate to the move of the mailing lists to Discourse.

It’s not easy to jump into a big project and it would not have been such a success for me without their official Slack channel where I was grateful to often find a helping hand when I had doubts, questions, or wanted to discuss and understand the process or direction of the project. That medium really helped me to ask the kind of questions I was afraid to ask on the mailing-list, which feels like a more formal medium.
