Hello,

This is Nick Vidal from Rocket.Chat

We’ve been part of GSoC for 5 years now, and as a way to celebrate and
give back to the open source community, this year we are reaching out
to other GSoC organizations to provide assistance on setting up
Rocket.Chat to engage with students (pro bono).

Rocket.Chat is a leading open source chat platform, and we’ve been
using the platform itself to engage with our own GSoC students. With
Rocket.Chat, it’s possible to create private/public channels for each
student/project so that mentors and students can communicate, share
ideas, and keep track of progress both asynchronously and in real
time. It’s also possible to create integrations to display pull
requests, mergers, and issues directly on these channels.

Please let me know if you would be interested in trying Rocket.Chat to
engage with your GSoC students. Myself and the Community Engagement
team are at your full disposal to help. Our mission is to serve the
open source community!

Kind regards,
Nick

Thanks! Except email, and either GitHub or GitLab, we usually don't
suggest specific communication tools to our GSoC students or Outreachy
interns. We are open to using other forms of communication, like
instant messaging or video calls, and associated tools, if they'd like
it though.

Ok, we will contact you if we agree with our students to try it.

Thanks,
Christian.
