Hi Ar

It would be better to utilize Matrix or another fediverse-compatible protocol. 
It provides similar functionality, without causing yourself and your peers to 
the injustices of communicating through proprietary server, proprietary 
non-standard protocol, for which the main official client is also non-free, as 
far as I am aware. In this context however, it is great to see that you are 
programming for discord. It is better than utilizing discord and not 
programming for it -- or writing discord chat bots whose code is not freely 
licensed. Thank you for your choice.

About Savannah requirements and eligibility:

* To run LightBot and interact with it -- to provide it with input and read its 
output -- will this require the user to use a discord client? Is there a 
discord client that is freely licensed?

(In the scenario that program 1 that requires the user to run a non-free 
program 2 in order for the user to be able to utilize program 1, program 1 is 
considered non-free.)
