Yeah, you have to do a lot of quite complicated stuff before you can
register and get any support via irc. To register to this mailing list
you just send an email (or can you fill in a form as well).

Complicated is relative.  If you don't understand how it works, it's best to research.  There 
are many guides a google search away.  

IRC can be helpful for support, but being interactive you're assuming that someone is standing by 
waiting for you to ask a question - which may or may not be the case.  IRC is more functional for online 
meetings and group discussions.  Mailing lists, forums, bugzilla, etc. are better for support and investigation of issues.
