libo-marketing is fine if many products coming under TDF umbrella

If there is too much traffic on #documentfoundation I agree.
I have to admit, that I don't lurk on IRC very often, but the last time
I've been there I didn't see more than approximately one discussion per
As long as there are not too many overlapping discussions on
#documentfoundation I'd like to keep the community as closely together
Several discussions relate to different teams (marketing, website,
design ...) so it is great if anybody can join even if she/he has not
been part of this team before.
This way we might reach contributors who never thought before to join
our marketing team...

Both points are at least as valid on the general IRC channel too:
For newbies it's much easier to ask their questions on a common channel
instead of finding out, which is the right channel / team for them.
And knowledge about each other is even more important across the
"borders" of dedicated teams.
Therefore I plead to stay on the general IRC channel
until work will become harder because of the numbers of postings there...
PS: When TDF becomes host for several products we might think of using
#libreoffice for general LibO discussions while devs might move to
#dev-libo or something similar. But we probably will not have to discuss
this before 2012...
