CartoCSS IRC channel?

Posted by Marcos Dione on 2 April 2018 in English (English)

I’ve been trying to continue implementing https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto/issues/110#issuecomment-377527922 , but I hit a wall with CartoCSS, and frankly, I don’t know where to ask questions about it. Do you think it makes sense to create a #cartocss channel in the OFTC network?

I’d imagine that most OSM CartoCSS people who use IRC will either be in #osm or #osm-dev, so I’m not convinced that a new IRC channel would get that many people in it. No harm in trying to create a new channel of course and see who turns up.

Another possibility might be https://gis.stackexchange.com/ (but you’d need a well-defined question there not just “help!”) or maybe the US-based Slack might have some US-based CartoCSS people in it.

@Marcos Dione That sounds plausible, yes. Although it’s a proprietary channel there’s an “open sign-up” page somewhere, though obviously you’d want to archive anything you want to keep as obviously they can take it away at any stage in the future.
