I don't think there will ever be enough people hacking on Debtags to
reach the critical mass. That's why I'd stick with #debian-devel.

It's not like we'll ever be 10 people working 8h a day on debtags.
More like 4 people working on average 1h a day, except Alex.

FYI: the #selinux channel is pretty much dead most of the time.
And you bet that there are way more people than will ever be on Debtags.

Why bother? If we need a channel for a meeting, we'll find a name. And
for regular hanging around and occassional discussion I'd just use
My channels list already fills my screen - I'm really reluctant to add
any new channel... and that is a common issue. I even know of people
who have reached the max. number of channels you can be on in IRC (I'm
on three networks regularly, so I'm far from that limit)
