Feel free to try running anything you like, but discussions will
generally take place wherever they take place. Adding a new
communication platform doesn't mean everyone will switch to it.
After all, there are already OpenStack discussion spaces on Discord,
Slack, Reddit... but IRC as a protocol has survived and outlived its
earlier "killed replacements" by decades, so I expect it will
persist regardless of what else comes along.
