Bug#660127: [www.debian.org] Support - On-line Real Time Help Using IRC: points to empty #LinPeople (after move from freenode to OFTC)

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

http://www.debian.org/support#irc contains:

At this point you will find yourself among the friendly crowd of #debian inhabitants. You're welcome to ask questions about Debian there. You can find the channel's faq at http://wiki.debian.org/DebianIRC.

If you can't find an answer to your problem in #Debian, try channels like #LinPeople, #LinuxHelp, or #help.

The last sentence must have been added when irc.debian.org pointed to freenode. Now that it points to OFTC, this is very little help:

On OFTC, #LinPeople is empty, #LinuxHelp has at this time 7 users, #help has at this time 14 users. In comparison, #debian has 485 users.
If #debian can't answer a Debian question, it's unlikely that these others channels will help.

In comparison, on freenode, #LinPeople has 27 users and #LinuxHelp has 55. #help redirects to #freenode, which has 784 users.

I suggest to just scrap that sentence.
