SV: JMC related slack

Messages are lost all the time with IRC, as you only see messages if you're
logged in, unless you use Matrix/Riot or some custom agent solution.
I agree there is a risk for communication fragmentation, but the high
priority communication should be happening on the mailing list anyways.
I think Slack brings benefits:
1. Easy to join.
2. Easy to thread conversations.
3. Easy to share content.
4. Easy to add additional channels and group up as needed.
5. Some persistence, giving people a chance to catch up even after being off-line.
We could probably gain similar benefits using e.g. Gitter or other solutions,
but many people probably have some Slack workspaces in their life already.
It would be great to have an IRC/Slack channel relay set up for the Slack though.
I see that there are several solutions, for example:
If someone feel like setting one up, it would be great!

But alternative means that messages there will be lost if you only use IRC, I think we should either have a relay (between both channels) or pick a side?
Otherwise we risk fragmenting the communication channels and this isn't good I think.
