I also would like to see a channel specifically for the back-channel but
it is not completely necessary. I will ask that if we do go this route,
instead of the pm route, that the channel be posted clearly at the

Please do not leave me out in the cold as to which channel I need to
search for whether it be #meego or a dedicated channel.
