@joyously referred to a question previously asked about the licensing “of the various docs: what is it and where is it stated”, inquiring if it was ever resolved or posted. @Kenshino answered that all docs in question were GPLv2, with permission to multi-license as-needed. He offered to create a page for the sake of clarity. The exchanges that followed weighed the merits of adding licensing content to post and page footers vs. creating a page. 

@joyously is finding the new order of DevHub sections to be less useful than the prior version. She cited a closed ticket that resulted in the change. @Kenshino is pursuing a response from @atachibana.

@manthanadmane and @softservenet inquired about creating a dedicated SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/.
