Hi

I wanted to get into Apache development. Though I am looking into various
projects and looking what interests me.
But I wanted to put in some views that I have noticed:

1) I didn't find any IRC channel for apache
2) It is good that mailing list is one of the prime means to communicate in
Apache but I feel that lack of IRC or active blog roll would have been
great. As mailing list isn't supposed to chat with fellow developers,
sharing ideas (other than development)
Or is it that in Apache familiarizing with people happen only if you live
close by or know each other in prior ? (or no discussion other than
development is required/allowed among people )

3) I just saw that GSoC results were out, but didn't find any
email/blog/news from apache about the same.

4) As a prospective student, I was looking to familiarize with other
students all over Apache, but again no mode of communication to them  and I
strongly believe that there wouldn't be any correspondence between
student/developers among various apache projects.
( IRC is really a great thing for that and I believe a community today
should have IRC culture to grow )

These were just my inputs, only aiming to know other people.

Just an example of what I am feeling: Fellow students/developers/gsoc
students please email me personally so that I may know you better.(and let
it go to thousands of busy persons over there)

Thanks
