I like the idea of getting more people involved in the IRC  
discussions.  To that end, I have two ideas:

1) Make the IRC transcripts subscribe-able.  I've done that here:


That should at the end of each day with only the non-bot messages  
from the IRC transcript, for quick skimming.

2) Make the IRC room more visible on the /discuss page by moving it  
up higher on the page.  The discussion list, the IRC room, and the  
blog are all suitable for the same broad audience, and might work  
better grouped together at the top of the page with the more  
technical lists below.

I also mentioned on IRC that I think many of the people who should be  
involved in these discussions have never used IRC, and Brian  
suggested we make a page listing IRC clients for people new to IRC,  
which I think is a good idea.
