We talked about this more during the meeting last night. Most people were
pretty neutral on the topic.
I personally feel like #openstack-dev is the ideal place to direct people
once they get set up on irc and are interested in contributing, but maybe
that is because my perception of the chats in #openstack isn't correct.
Looking at the definition in the IRC channel list and the channel
topic I feel like it more for support questions on running openstack? I
dunno. I honestly didn't spend time in the channel really until I joined
last night so maybe my perception just needs an update. I am all ears for
your reasoning behind #openstack instead of #openstack-dev though too.
Please enlighten me :)
