The use of e-mail as the primary means for communication is part of ASF
policy and philosophy, and we can certainly learn lessons from projects that
have gone against it.  IRC tends to breed a more closed, albeit arguably
more integrated, community.

That said, if IRC can be used as a learning tool to rapidly bring new people
up to speed, and if the information gathered from those sessions is
preserved for others to follow up via web-site and e-mail, how do people
perceive that?
