The source code is forked from https://github.com/sciyoshi/redmine-slack. Special thanks to the original author and contributors for making this awesome hook for Redmine. This fork is just refactored to use Mattermost-namespaced configuration options in order to use both hooks (Mattermost and Slack) in a Redmine installation.
