No. All Apache projects use email for everything. In this way, all
discussions are recorded in the mail archives so that people can
search and not keep asking the same questions.

What seems like a small question to you, might be all that was needed
for someone listening to finally understand some huge topic.

Also using IRC does not work for a global development community.
Some of us will be asleep and so would not be able to participate.
With mail, we can participate at any time.
