Oh, sorry.  When we explain to potential contributors how to register
to use IRC.  FreeNode has this responsibility.  Were we to assume that
responsibility we would have to track any changes to the instructions.

In similar fashion, 
assumes some responsibility for how to use Matrix.

On the positive side, I love how our potential contributors have
yielded someone like Srevin who doesn't need to be told how to do
things with tools like git, github, IRC, and Matrix.

I welcome potential contributors, but I just don't think we need to
hold their hands and lead them around.  I give them a list of things
to do, and when they don't do them I know what to do next; nothing.
