Right, my fault - sorry to mix topics!

True, but technical features are far less important than community.

I am not forcing anyone to do anything here, only encouraging - 
insistingly - to join existing community, not fork a new one.

XMPP _servers_ are more decentralized, yes.

You confuse matters here: It is *not* easier to setup decentralized XMPP 
servers - I believe your current MUC runs on a single host which is 
*less* decentralized than the "bad" irc.

True, offline-buffering can be offered server-side for XMPP and not for 
irc - which brings a slight benefit, but with that big loss of needing 
the community to shift over.

So discussions like "how to best setup an APT proxy?" and "how to build 
in clean environment?" are fine to discuss in a vacuum?  Please
