Announcement
I
have created and registered two channels, both unofficial: 


	

	
irc://irc.freenode.net/##caldav-google
irc://irc.freenode.net/##caldav-google 
	
	

	

	
irc://irc.freenode.net/##caldav-interop
irc://irc.freenode.net/##caldav-interop 



Within
each channel: the topic should be self-explanatory, and may be
refined if needs arise. 


Intention
In
unofficial venues such as this, users may: 


	

	
speak
	freely about their first impression of a problem 
	

	

	
gain
	direction

	

	
address
	a request for support, a request that is more refined, to the
	organisation that is best placed to consider the issue(s). 
	


Background

	

	

	'
http://groups.google.com/group/calaboration-discuss/browse_thread/thread/8b023631ae28e9ea&gt"
What a nuisance this program is ' is exemplary of a discussion that
	has little or nothing to do with the thing (
http://code.google.com/p/calaboration/ Calabaration ) on which a Group
	is focused.

	

	
Within
	and beyond the Calabaration area, there exist other examples of
	off-topic, sometimes frustrated discussions. 
	

	

	
Without
	being pessimistic: we (users and developers of CalDAV-oriented
	products and services) may reasonably expect occasional streams of
	'confused newcomers'. These streams may be larger following any
	significant product/service announcement.

[05:44] <grahamperrin> JeffreyH and osaf-log: minor announcement of
two unofficial channels ##caldav-interop and ##caldav-google 
[05:45] <grahamperrin> Topics may be refined in due course. 
[05:47] <grahamperrin> The value of the latter became clear as I
observed some very off-topic pleas for help in a Google Group for a
Google Code product, 
[05:47] <grahamperrin> a product intended for one-off use by Apple
iCal users of Google Calendar. 
[05:48] Action: grahamperrin quits to take lunch!
