However, we don't need to carry all discussion via chat. That would be
problematic --- you can't get everybody online and free at the same time,
at will. Chat could be helper in solving issues that don't converge after
two-three emails.

Of course, chat has it's own problem -- for example, I'd really like
if Markus could take part. Let's see if he can bypass his firewall.

FWIW, the boost ml has significant delays for me. Messages are being kept
by the mail server for 20-30 mins.

Similiar things happen with jamboost, but it's less predictable. Sometimes
it's fast, sometimes very slow.

and I'm not sure we need it, now.
