New package feeds on Zulip and Slack!

@dilumaluthge, @logankilpatrick, and I have put together a channel called new-packages-feed on the community Slack and Zulip which automatically posts all new package registrations made to the General registry. Thanks to @jling who suggested the idea in the first place.

Follow along to check out what new packages are headed to the Julia ecosystem! And check out our new Contribution guidelines for how to get involved in helping maintain the General registry.

For package authors: to add release notes to your registration, if you are using the comment bot, the syntax is here: https://github.com/JuliaRegistries/Registrator.jl#release-notes, and if you are using JuliaHub, there is a box to enter them: https://juliahub.com/ui/Registrator.

We hope to also soon pull the repo description automatically from GitHub or GitLab and add that for additional context (https://github.com/JuliaRegistries/Registrator.jl/pull/349).
