As you pointed out, IRC channels are very ad hoc and 'creating' one only
requires a person signing on to it.  As such, it seems that if people were
at all interested that all that would really be required was making it
convention (ie if people want to go there, go to #bioconductor, #bioC or
whatever they would want).  It could be put into the FAQ perhaps but I
don't see what else would need to be done.  Of course, my experience with
IRC pretty much ended over 10 years ago so maybe things are different now
