Since I was asked "how":

http://stackoverflow.com/tags/awesome-wm/info?

Hover over the "awesome-wm" in "About awesome-wm", wait for the popup
and click subscribe.

Likely just another "the website is the application and the protocol"
system which makes you completely dependent on them for client and
server. Thanks I'll stick to email and IRC where they follow an open
protocol and I can choose my client.

As suggested on reddit, I made matrix channel, that have integrations with
IRC and gitter. So subset is bigger than only IRC.
But I need some help with IRC integration - it requires IRC channel
operator to approve it.

Well, yes. I subscribed to the "awesomewm" tag and get mail
notifications. Still, this seems to be only me.

> IRC seems to be the most popular way.

With my IRC-time decreasing, this is again mostly Elv13 with some help
from Daniel, I think.

However, questions on the mailing list are addressed more often, I think.

I'm not really sure. The current situation is non-intuitive and a bit
weird. I think "GitHub issues" is the only "communication channel" that
everything looks at. However, this will scare away people from asking
questions.

First impression (after reading on Wikipedia what it is): One more
communication channel that reaches only a subset of people (which for
awesome means: only one person).

Hello, I would like to contribute to awesome-wm.
I think one of the best things that I can do, is to organize better
community communication.
IRC and mailing lists are great, but when I tried to contact with someone,
it was very hard:
Almost no one use IRC, and it's kind of impolite (in my imagination) to
write emails to every one.
What do you think about gitter? I think I can organize and handle it.

This was the first I heard of the list shutdown (I don't see any prior
notice posted to the list).

As it's very low-traffic, it's certainly within the capabilities of
Gentoo to host it along with the mailing lists (at lists.gentoo.org).
