The problem is one of timezones .. IRC works if most of the people are
in the same/similar TZ. If you want people from the other side of the
world to become part of the project then please don't use IRC all the
time; its a PITA to read logs and have to deal with stuff thru that. 

A regularly scheduled IRC chat does work but if IRC is a key part of
day-to-day execution then IMO that's a problem from the global
perspective. Of course YMMV.
