We have had several meetings in IRC where we have been discussing a topic and someone from the development community chimed in to enrichen the conversation.  The logs that Christopher mentioned are another benefit and the eavesdrop.openstack.org listing allows community members to create a calendar entry as well (this definitely helps people who might be interested in your working group find you).  I would also be glad to help any way I can to help the Scientific WG adjust to IRC (should you decide to use it).

+1. I know it’s weird to talk  to your (younger) colleagues about using IRC, but it works, especially for globally distributed teams.

One of the things we teach in the OpenStack Upstream training (http://docs.openstack.org/upstream-training/) is how to setup/use IRC. We already have a short guide for that:


and we also cover this topic with hands on exercises during the training itself (slides: http://docs.openstack.org/upstream-training/06-irc-meetings.html).

Maybe we can expand this?
