In #pypa-dev, I raised the possibility of moving our PyPA support channels from IRC to another hosted solution that enables persistence. Although IRC has served us well, there are systems now with clear feature advantages, which are crucial to my continuous participation:
FWIW, I won't be switching to gitter or slack - I find the push notifications and always-on experience exhausting. It gets in the way of thinking or doing anything useful. I often leave my phone in priority-only mode to shut facebook and twitter and such things up for hours - or days - at a time.
Thats presuming there is a IRC bridge in whatever the community as a whole does. If there isn't, then I'd setup an account for use from a browser when desired, but from the sounds of it I'd need to blacklist their email address to keep noise down.
