I'd be happy to see more people on #cordova.

If an interesting point is raised on IRC, then a mailing-list or JIRA
discussion can be kicked off.
If an IRC logger exists, then the relevant IRC thread can also be
referenced.

I've went ahead and created and IRC page on the Wiki, which details where
the channel is found, the expected etiquette around discussions and
decisions, and how to OP/DEOP members [1].
