Hi Diane,
   I agree completely. I only use IRC to attend the Evergreen Oversight Board 
Meeting because that is the venue of choice for those meetings. Otherwise, I 
avoid it. I find it to be difficult to use, and it seems to lean more towards 
the programmer side of things. Launchpad, while a great tool, is similarly 
geared for the programming community.
   For library-speak, this list seems to be the best place. Now that we know 
there is an audience who wants to discuss Web Client issues in library-speak, 
our consortium will share more of its discoveries and issues here.

Absolutely. If I only complained at my library and never sent a help desk 
ticket to the IT department, it would be my own fault if nothing got fixed.

There are, however, two sets of people working with Evergreen. The programmers 
and the end users. And we speak two different languages. I have looked at the 
IRC and it is programmer-speak, not library-speak.  I would like more 
communication with end users in library-speak.

Thanks for listening.

And I am not trying to stop people from discussing bugs on this or any
other list. I think that's fine, too.

It's just that Launchpad is the official record of the known bugs and
feature requests, so if it is not on Launchpad, it is not on the RADAR.

I hear that IRC is also a good place to discuss bugs or other issues. :)
