In order to have less technology using third-party services it would be interesting to allow users of Italian-language Wikipedia not to use Telegram but to use Mattermost.
Personally I've nothing against Telegram because I use the Telegram FOSS version that is 100% free software from my client-side and that's enough for me. Anyway at present our Mattermost installation presents some added value.
Obviously the Mattermost cons is that it's deserted. A nice way to isolate yourself in freedom.
We would like to bidirectionally bridge a public Telegram group and our freshly created public Mattermost channel.
