And, once I stopped expecting it to be an IM channel, I have to say that whatever the subject, I have always gotten immensely useful information from the team on gitter.
As we get more contributors gitter will become more active and you will be able to answer many of the questions for each other. There’s little point expecting a great deal of chatter if there’s only half a dozen people outside the company that have built livecode from source. FWIW I have it on my phone and open on my desktop so I get notifications and respond if I know the answer. Usually it’s “Have you updated submodules?” ;-)
