Surely, you could agree on a name and have an inofficial channel on Freenode - or does one exist already?

Again, we don't have the resources or time to put into an IRC channel. Like explained many times before, we don't want the IRC channel to become the place where the questions are asked instead of the on the forums, which is the biggest concen right after the resources of setting a channel up.

...the problem being, presumably, the ephemerality of IRC conversations, whereas the forum remains searchable both by the search function and external crawlers such as Google.

So what is needed is an irc logging bot/server function that intelligently transforms irc content into threads. Sounds like the perfect undergraduate/masters research project to me!

you're free to go start a chat room wherever you please, but we'd rather you didn't call it "linuxquestions.org". thanks.
