I don't see why we should force people to have a GitHub account,
considering there are other means of logging into Gitter.
As to getting the right type of people, I'm not sure it's relevant. Most
people are likely to have one, and those who don't are likely to not have
one for political reasons (think free software extremists) rather than
because they aren't tech savvy enough: while the "hibernate" naming might
confuse users looking for information about grizzly bears, I doubt my
grandmother, my 7-year-old nephew or even my non-software-engineer of a
wife would end up on Gitter by mistake.

I don't remember. We created these rooms as an experiment in 2014..
Yoann created some more rooms recently.
Should we enforce people to have a Github account? I'd like that, I
think it would better nudge towards getting the right type of people
