[admin] Please use IRC and #webapps for ad hoc "meetings"

Hi All,

In addition to what Chaals said below, when folks meet to discuss 
WebApps' specs, please do use the #webapps channel to record the 
discussion (log is at [1]).

There are a number of "cheat sheets" re the IRC bots (f.ex. [2]) so 
please do use those bots and if desired, we can easily assure the Zakim 
teleconf bridge is available for you.

-Thanks, AB
