Thanks!  Hadn't realised that was there - in which case that might actually
be a better link off from the website considering it also offers a link to
sign up?

Oh, I generally hate all of them - I'm no longer one of the cool kids - I
like my email! ;-)  Still, it was the (perceived) lack of publicly readable

Gitter stems from that (and the embedding potential / move to open-source)
