About half a year back Cédric and I did start a test to see if Mattermost is a valuable tool for the Eclipse community. Failure was an option, since a new tool should bring some benefit to the community.
The server this instance was running on was sponsored by my current employer, IBH SYSTEMS GmbH. The test was scheduled to be terminate at the end of June. And since I will change to RedHat, starting in July, we were forced to make a decision:

:-) Mattermost now is a permanent, community supported service of the Eclipse Foundation. Hosted on the Eclipse Foundation’s infrastructure, but supported by its community. We also dropped the “-test” in the domain name. So please update your links, if you had some. All content was migrated to the new server.
Also did we setup a new IRC bridge, which does bridge the IRC channel #eclipse-dev on freenode to the Mattermost channel developers-qa.
Cédric and I proposed a talk at for EclipseCon Europe 2016 to show the community what Mattermost is and how it can be used for engaging users and committers.
Happy chatting ;-)
