(No hats.)

I think the Editor team should use whatever tooling they think is best.

A requirement to sign up for an account with a 3rd party in order to
contribute was the thing that drove me to XMPP in the first place, so it
is important to me that it still be possible without signing up for
Github, Gitlab or any such service. I believe the Editor team accepts
contributions via email, and I'm happy as long as such an option exists.
