I apologize for abruptly dropping off IRC. #scheme-live had good discussion but we did not really end up doing design work there; #scheme is in the same boat. So far email and GitHub issues have been productive design outlets. I have similar experiences with Slack as with IRC re: design, things quickly get disorganized and people aren't generally in a mood to work on concrete problems there. A way to group discussion threads by subject seems to be a necessary and sufficient condition for design work. The last thread on Scheme processes should have perhaps gone to the WG2 mailing list; it's hard to say with the work being so intertwined.
