Setting up a matrix homeserver for the social dot coop
Hi all! I want to set up a matrix homeserver for social.coop. I've been meaning to play around with matrix for awhile now, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to do so. I was planning on just selfhosting it myself, since the server costs are free, but I'd need to get a subdomain pointed at my ip and i'm not sure who I should talk to about that. I was thinking either chat.social.coop or matrix.social.coop, although I don't really have a preference.
As for the financial aspect, I'm more than happy to host it for free for now, since it doesn't cost me anything besides the time it takes to set it up and I wanna learn the nitty gritty of the matrix protocol anyways. If it blows up and everyone starts using it, we can figure out a more permanent hosting setup then, but there's not much of a point in hashing all that out before we even know if people will use it.
ps: this is my first loomio thread and i'm still gettin the hang of it, so apologies if i forgot to do something or did something wrong.

This is great. This is a collective effort, so it should be clear that admin decisions should be made in this working group. Also, it seems good to put this to the membership, both to advertise it and because it is a change to our infrastructure.
