Thanks for reviewing it, and so quickly.

I think Julian suggested something like this previously and it has
been in the back of my mind for the eventual website reboot. I like
the idea of a consolidated "contact us" type page, including mailing
lists and IRC. In the meantime, yes, the IRC info could be added to
/mailing-lists.html without too much trouble.

This reminds me: On /mailing-lists.html, we have links to gmane. AFAIK
that's long gone, so probably those should be removed.

I'll try to free up some cycles for that...
