Yes, I know it's a problem.  The main #debian-women channel is on oftc, which
makes oftc the best choice for #debian-women-new, and I believe that
#debian-bugs on freenode is the usual bugsquashing channel.  Hence the problem.
 I hope that anyone really interested in bugsquashing will be able to deal with
the different networks, or switch to an IRC client that makes it easier, or ask
somewhere to find out.

Thanks for forwarding it! (presumably to someone who is potentially interested)
