That meta page is probably the list I had in mind, thank you for
pointing it out. As you say, it is thin on the ground with other
projects, so I'd appreciate people who know these channels adding them

Birgitte, you're right about spreading it to channel topics. I think
some organisation of translation of something like "Help develop the
new Wikimedia IRC channel guidelines at [[m:IRC guidelines]]" is
necessary. I assume it won't be too hard for me to dig around meta and
find translators; it's not something I've had to do before.

Okay, I can understand that I may have phrased that a bit harshly. I
didn't actually see it myself and was going on the comments made by
David Gerard above. I'm interested in your thoughts on IRC taking care
of itself - I agree that to a certain extent it does, but I think we
can make it /better/ by developing material through other mediums.

I think we can make this work.
