At http://www.mozilla.org/community/developer-forums.html#chat there's reference to 

> irc.mozilla.org 

with no particular channel. At the referring page https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=etiquette.html there is no mention of IRC. 

Today in irc://irc.mozilla.org/#mbo I received excellent advice, including references to two other IRC channels.

I shouldn't expect to see a long list of specific channels at either http://www.mozilla.org/community/developer-forums.html#chat or https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=etiquette.html but maybe at the Bugzilla Etiquette page you could add a reference to:

irc://irc.mozilla.org/#mbo

Some other channel may be a better starting point. At your discretion :)

Thanks
Graham

Reproducible: Didn't try



Expected Results:  
Reference to a specific IRC channel will be very helpful to users (such as me) who prefer IRC to news/NNTP.

If irc://irc.mozilla.org/#mbo is 
comparable to irc://irc.freenode.net/#freenode 
then http://freenode.net/channel_guidelines.shtml may be of interest
( http://www.diigo.com/04ioq for highlights).
A reference to http://irc.mozilla.org/ might also be useful.

/me agrees with Gavin and apologises for the (slightly dyslexic) typos; wherever I wrote 
mbo
it should be 
bmo

I'm not sure #bmo is the correct channel for support - that's the sysadmin's channel IIRC.

The etiquette page is about etiquette. But I'm sure some of the major channels could be listed on developer-forums.html. Patch welcome :-)

Closing old Mozilla.org website bugs due to them not being relevant to the new Python-based Bedrock system. Re-open if this is a critical bug and should be resolved on the new system too.
