you will find a much better response if you ask your question on the
debian-user mailing list. That list is more representative of the good people
who use debian than the IRC channel. IRC is another kind of beast. It is more
hit or miss. Debian does not pay people to moderate IRC or the mailing lists,
we are a group of volunteers. There are developers, administrators, users and
such. There are about 1,000 main debian software maintainers. But maintaining
software is different than answering questions on IRC or mailing lists. The
people on IRC and Mailing lists can be anyone. Please try the mailing lists on
lists.debian.org, you will find nice folks there. You might also have local
debian user group for even better help. my local group goes out for beers and
helps new users personally.
