This extension is an effort to test the following hypothesis:
Maintaining definitions of domain lingo via a chat bot is the best way to keep those definitions up to date and readily accessible (assuming the group uses some form of internet chat).
This may be the case because:
It allows painless updating of the definitions (no pull requests, etc.).
It allows painless retrieval of the definitions.
It provides a single entry point to docs that are spread among a number of sources (assuming you provide links).
It enables somewhat automatic review of definitions as they are added or retrieved.
It creates “accidental” education: you’ll learn stuff just sitting in a channel and seeing the definitions scroll by.
It keeps the definitions in front of the eyes of the domain experts, maximizing the chances they will spot an obsolete, misguided, or missing entry.
