Jeremy - Sorry you couldn't join. This came up in the meeting today. And not only about IRC but also Etherpads and Gerrit.
Here's the etherpad from today's discussion: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/9_2_15_WOS and action items with owners. Feel free to add your comments and name to any of the action items.

Though it does appear that requiring the use of a telephone did indeed make it difficult/impossible for at least some people to participate. Perhaps having a conference call to explain to people how to use IRC would be a good middle ground, and faster bootstrap participants onto the mechanisms established within our community for mass communication.
