Not quite. It would probably solve the issues *for me*, but I've already
solved most of my issues. If we still say "our official communication
channel is IRC", that's what people will (try to) use.

If we do get an easy "hey, press this button to talk to ironic folks", it
may change my mind though. Right now it seems to be IRCCloud, but I'm a bit
uneasy about recommending everyone to go through some private service,
especially about putting something like that in our contributor's guide.
