Thanks for starting this!
The choice of IRC is a bit special on the list as we never intended it
to be killed: it has been historically important and we should
maintain some level of reachability on it. So voting for the "IRC"
choice just means a preference to not use anything else on top of it,
while alternatively we'' be using X on top of IRC, albeit with a
preference to use X for team conversations.
Also good to remind: please try to be on IRC as well occasionally as
many in the OSS community we integrate with will reach out there.
