they say we need a logout/login but functionality will stay around if I

does that mean we need a Matrix account or anything ?

Perhaps we could start a single room, say, on Mattias' solidweb which is a

I will participate in these efforts if the community wants.

we can make a dedicated pod for that purpose and freely choose any URL.
it would look like `https://chatpod.solidweb.org/public/container`
