As a related topic to this, I'd like to see us move most of our IRC
channels to freenode.net. If an open source project has an IRC
channel, it is likely to be on freenode. Having our channels on our
own servers puts us in kind of a ghetto, because if forces people to
connect to yet another server. This is a bit of friction that I
think we ought to eliminate.
