That bloody newcomers with their buzzwords, should we just forget about
them? Maybe have a bot that asks a tricky git question on join and bans
whoever cannot respond to it?
Seriously, the attitude in this thread is disturbing. FOSS is no longer an
realm of bearded dudes with messy hair (hey, I only have messy hair!).
People matter. People who cannot install an IRC bouncer matter. People who
are too busy to play with our favourite toys matter. Such a small thing as
"how easy it is to talk to them" can be a deciding factor between us and
I'm fine with focusing on the issue at hand, but I'm not fine pretending
that we're not explicitly exclusive with our choice of tools. Necessarily
so in case of gerrit, purely by choice in case of IRC.
