Thanks Joe,

Nice to connect. And absolutely. We should consider IRC.
Let´s see what other people are thinking so we can agree based on the
preference of the majority.

Anyone else prefers IRC instead of Hangouts?

Also maybe we should post this information somewhere central, Is there a
Wiki page?

Look forward to collaborating. :-)

Cesar
