Hi Danishka, all,

Hi Folks,

As you all know we have been using #documentfoundation for IRC
But it would be more useful if we have separate channel for marketing team.

If there is too much traffic on #documentfoundation I agree.

I have to admit, that I don't lurk on IRC very often, but the last time I've been there I didn't see more than approximately one discussion per hour.

As long as there are not too many overlapping discussions on #documentfoundation I'd like to keep the community as closely together as possible.

Several discussions relate to different teams (marketing, website, design ...) so it is great if anybody can join even if she/he has not been part of this team before.

This way we might reach contributors who never thought before to join our marketing team...

Apart from the confcall meeting we can use it for marketing related requires
from newbies.
And also it would be useful for build get to know each other.

Both points are at least as valid on the general IRC channel too:

For newbies it's much easier to ask their questions on a common channel instead of finding out, which is the right channel / team for them.

And knowledge about each other is even more important across the "borders" of dedicated teams.

Therefore I plead to stay on the general IRC channel irc://
until work will become harder because of the numbers of postings there...

Best regards


PS: When TDF becomes host for several products we might think of using #libreoffice for general LibO discussions while devs might move to #dev-libo or something similar. But we probably will not have to discuss this before 2012...
