Comments on 2018-09-10 Trunk Explosion

The newer edition of Trunk now comes with a queue and a bot.

I installed the bot as @trunk and every ten minutes it connects to see if anybody mentioned it using the formula “Please add me to a comma separated list of names.” If so, it adds the request to a queue stored in the Trunk app. There, admins have an easy way to accept the request.

What this lacks is feedback! I’ll have to think of something. Right now, the bot will accept direct messages which the admins might not even see. Ideally, the admin’s action would then prompt the bot to reply, I guess.
