Community website is good for discussion and async talks. But it will be nice to have an irc channel where we can get sync reply from developer, specially while working on code and get clear our doubt and also help other new contributor.
We occasionally do get requests to high bandwidth comms with developers, there is a balance between opening the floodgates with a public to the world IRC and something more manageable like Slack.
On Github our developers are quite responsive so if you need a hand with an issue, that’s the better place to start for now.
