Community out of Telegram
Do you have any plans on expanding the community outside of Telegram? There would be some public Matrix bridges for it such as the T2Bot Matrix Telegram bridge and if you selfhost, Matterbridge (more of a relaybot though) supports a lot of protocols.
I am personally not comfortable with Telegram and from those I kind of support I think Matrix and IRC make the most sense for public open source projects.
Edit: I forgot to say that I don't know how much community activity there is or if I would be able to contribute much, but encrypted DNS is a topic I care about a lot, so I would be interested in at least following discussions at times without having a Telegram account.
