Hi,

> Does an ACE/TAO IRC channel exist? If so where? If not should we create
one?

Not that I know of. Maybe it is something some people could use but most of
the core developers are already swamped with work and do their best to
answer e-mails on the mailing lists, so adding another communication channel
is not something they probably have time for the respond to.

Even as a ACE users online forum it would be helpful sometimes. Some questions 
(not related to bugs) can be asked easier on a medium that allows immediate 
response. It could also help to to build an ACE community where experienced 
users answer less experienced users. And even if the developers listen on the 
channel (for curiosity I suppose) - nobody requires them to answer.

How about a poll?
Who is interested in participating (actively) in an ACE/TAO irc channel?
If we get enough interest we can think of creating one. Freenode would be my 
suggestion. We can also create separate channels for ACE, TAO, CIAO if 
requested.

Hi Folks,

        There's certainly nothing wrong with setting up an ACE+TAO irc
channel for ACE+TAO users.  As Johnny mentions, the core developers
may not have time to be involved, but if there are users who want to
get involved that's great.  My only concern would be the lack of an
archive for common questions and answers - I'm not sure whether irc
supports this, whereas google news provides a good store for keeping
track of Q&A.

Take care,

        Doug
