Thanks Christian! I am hoping for a mix of men and women to be there, as is
normal for #debian-women.

It's intended to be temporary. If it works, I guess we could consider making it
more permanent. But that might be harder, because something like this really
needs people to be paying it close attention all the time, so I'm not sure how
long we could keep that up for.
What do people think about the idea of a more permanent channel for newcomers to
Debian Women or IRC?
