Welcome, and I agree that the mailing list is the main channel, especially since it's asynchronous and publicly archived, so everyone can see it and participate. I've also noticed below your sig, it reads, "This message is copyright PD Inc, subject to license 20080407P00." Since this project and I think all its output (including the mailing list archives) are intended to be free (and specifically not copyright), does that kind of blanket e-mail copyright statement run counter to our goals? Furthermore, since I don't explicitly copyright my e-mails, it seems that because you do, then statements I've said in a previous e-mail message are now being copyrighted by you in their reply. I'm not terribly comfortable with that, and I hope I'm misunderstanding how that copyright statement works. Could you please clarify?

I idle on IRC myself, but it's mostly for general chatting. I consider the mailing list to be the main method of communication.
