+    <title>Communication channels</title>
+    <p>
+      The primary mechanism for communication is the mailing lists.
+      This enables anyone to participate, no matter what their time zone.
+      This enables a reliable archive of past discussion that can be searched
+      for answers.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      All decisions are made on the "dev" mailing list.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      The main channel for user support is the "user" mailing list.
+      As is usual with mailing lists, be prepared to wait for an answer.
+    </p>
+    <p>
+      Occasionally we will use other communication channels such as IRC.
+      These are used only for a specific purpose and are not permanently
+      available. This policy ensures that solutions are available in the
+      mailing list archives and enables people to respond at whatever time
+      that they choose. Permanent IRC channels are poor from a community-building
+      point-of-view, as they tend to create time-zone based cliques.
+      So we don't.
