[Users] meeting minutes for 2018-04-09

Hello all.

With the lack of users on the ETK IRC channel, I propose that we move to
gitter. Unlike IRC, gitter does not require that users be logged in
constantly, and it has been used to great success within the SymPy
community: https://gitter.im/sympy/sympy . By default, you receive email
notifications if someone poses a question directed at you, and notification
settings can be adjusted to be noisier or less noisy as desired. Here's the
gitter Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gitter.

I just set up an Einstein Toolkit gitter chat page:


as well as a Performance Optimization Working Group chat page:


Additional channels for working groups within the Toolkit can be set up
under the Einstein-Toolkit/ subdirectory. Also, channel administration
privileges can be added/modified as needed.

You can log in to gitter using github or twitter. *Though gitter uses
github credentials, it can also interface with bitbucket repos.* Gitter can
also be accessed via desktop and mobile apps.

Messages in gitter rooms are public, searchable, and stored to the cloud
indefinitely. Also, private one-on-one chats are possible within gitter.
