Just a note with my mentor hat on: everything is supposed to happen on
the mailing lists in an Apache project, so that people can follow and
influence decisions, whatever their time zone and physical locations,
without having to follow "outside" channels.

Most ASF folks use other channels like IRC, twitter, phone, coffee
machine chat etc., of course..the important point IMHO is that any
"important" discussion must be summarized on the dev list, and all
decisions must happen here.
