Is your open source project still using Slack for its community? Consider:
Mozilla has migrated their chat to Matrix: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Matrix
Mattermost now offers hosted service with special pricing for OSS projects: https://mattermost.com/nonprofit/
There are probably even more I'm not aware of.
There are good Free options now. Time to get out of the proprietary SaaS lock-in.
@nivex I'm using matrix and emails for mine
@nivex Note that one big reason that Matrix got Mozilla's vote was that they are - by a wide margin - the strongest option out there in terms of community safety and accessibility.
@nivex We've seen several open source projects using Discord, too. Same thing!
@nivex i am about to make a little organization use rocketchat...
