Hi all,

A lot of people been testing this for two weeks now, and most developer
discussion has already moved to blender.chat. Feedback from developers is
very positive.

I propose to make it the official Blender chat channel, which would mean:
* Update links on blender.org to point to
blender.chat/channel/blender-coders as the main channel, with IRC as
* Weekly meetings would take place on blender.chat.
* The IRC channel would remain but clearly point to blender.chat in the
topic as the main channel.
* Blender developers can still use IRC, but it's optional and over time
likely few will remain active there.

If anyone has objections or concerns, please let us know. If not, we can
confirm this officially.
