I'd agree with that too - the conversations between people building and maintaining infrastructure are not the same as between the users of the infrastructure, but there needs to be opportunity for "users" to discuss things with "builders" in relation to the site itself.

Maybe there needs to be a 'meta' IRC and a WPD IRC (and maybe a 'meta' list and forum usage docs wiki too?)  meta as in metadata - discussion about the infrastructure
