18 Ok, the above was a bit too compromised. The official communication
19 channels within the project of course also includes the ways the
20 developers are expected to work together; i.e also bugzilla and the
21 various required mailing lists.
23 Whether IRC is official communication channel is more of an interesting
24 discussion; as it is not a required medium for developers, but it is
25 definitely close due to the amount of work that is being done over it.
27 but from a PR perspective the official communication channels are the
28 website and mailing list announcements (that for us acts as press releases)
