@Cadaur @saimn - Am I right that the bridge still requires a gitter account? I'm wondering for astropy/astropy.github.com#104
That is, maybe we should remove the IRC section completely in favor of gitter + gitter/IRC bridge

Oh, and a question that those in this room might care about: #3695 and #4747 have two slightly different ways of implementing a gitter badge (see https://github.com/astropy/astropy/pull/3695#issuecomment-203591495) - we could use some more opinions on which one works better!

@eteq : Yes, you need to log in to get a token: https://irc.gitter.im/
I agree that it is better to have only one chat room, and gitter is much easier to setup for most people (though I tend to prefer IRC, it is more difficult to setup if you want to get logs/notifications when you are offline).

So :+1: to "deprecate" the irc channel
