The projects that have a channel usually use irc.freenode.net, although 
there's no official recommendation for this. Also, it is important to 
keep the main discussions on the mailing-list so that it is archived and 
people from all around the world can participate, whatever their timezone.

So IRC is useful for babbling and short questions, or occasional high 
bandwidth discussions, but any important outcome of these discussions 
must be reported to the list.
