Love that argument. So, perhaps we shouldn't look for easy ways and
embrace diversity in general, and look for WeChat that you mentioned or

From Carles next mail:

IRC is not only a tool for core contributors, maintainers and TSC
members, but also users of the RTOS. The sentence “oh, but IRC still
*exists*” has come up too many times in the last few months while
introducing engineers to the Zephyr project.
That's actually very good comment. Trying to close my eyes and
make a reminiscence of that, following comes out of me: "There's an
idea to make a *support* channel on Slack for all the "IRC lives??"
people." Sounds great, and especially that there're people who want to
do support both on IRC and elsewhere.

The more dissemination we have, the better. Just randomly searched for
"zephyr rtos" (no hope for just "zephyr") on Reddit, and
disappointedly, #1 hit is still the post for 1.9 release I made a
year ago. If we can't make semi-regular posts on popular IT crowd sites
like Reddit, let's at least create a Slack channel. Or can do both
actually. Or all of them:

1. Development channel on IRC
2. I believe there is/was something like #zephyr-bluetooth on IRC too.
I never understood why, but I heard there was.
3. Slack channel.
4. Reddit subreddit
... more

but I think we
ought to be honest with ourselves that this is really what we are
arguing about.
