In March 2021, Asciidoctor changed their primary chat group from gitter.im/asciidoctor/asciidoctor to asciidoctor.zulipchat.com. Because 1) Zulip chat is viewable only if you are signed in and 2) I have a personal rule to not join walled gardens, I can’t view these messages.
While deciding if I would make an exception to my no-login-walls rule, I researched Zulip at:
After reading all of the above articles (and more), I still do not know the answers to these questions:
Is Zulip still owned by Dropbox, who bought them in 2014?
What is the relationship between Dropbox and Kandra Labs, who run the cloud and on-premises Zulip services?
The lack of clarity about these things convinced me that — for now — Zulip is not a company I want to be involved with.
