Sorry, Evan, but hosting a chat service is not an option for
Infrastructure. That would be contrary to our work on consolidating

We can have HipChat rooms for any/all projects. A simple Jira request, and
you're all set.

In short, the ASF is happy to have duplicative topics/projects because each
community may approach a problem in different ways, with different focuses.
But our Infra resources are limited, so we can't/won't stand up duplicate
services. And even better when they can be outsourced (like HipChat, and
increasingly GitHub).
