The wikitech.leuksman.com wiki is primarily for our own documentation of setup
and administrative actions, and is not used for discussion.

The operations team hangs out in #wikimedia-tech on irc.freenode.net.

Decision-making, such as our recent agreement on which Linux distribution to use
for new installations or picking which hardware to order, tend to be in a
private channel e-mail; such discussions in public tend to get waaaaaaay too
much noise. :P
