Subject Re: IRC Channel link on website?
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2012 22:45:24 GMT
I'm not saying this shouldn't be done, but shouldn't this go through  
some kind of vote process/discussion?

The channel now says its the "Official Apache Flex Channel" but no-one  
has really commented on that yet have they, except Bertrand with  
concerns. Does Apache Flex require IRC?

That said I do think IM speeds things up, but it would be very  
difficult to make sure nothing is decided there after some good  
discussion.
