Well, if it's a channel where people are welcomed through discussion, 
it's a discussion channel, but I was not saying that "a discussion 
channel created by the new team" is the best label possible, just

To clarify my comment, what I was expecting for the current label is 
either a list of team members, or a page *about* the team ( such as ).
