The only thing that concerns me is that at that point we'd have

some senses overlaps with all the others.
All of these are good things but would we have a coherent story about
why we had all of them, and would it just make it a nightmare to find
the right information / person?
So the intention with hubs is that it would have a web based chat
interface that would use IRC. So if you prefer your old IRC client, keep
using it; if you're a newbie and not familiar with IRC and want to
communicate with Fedora folks, use Hubs chat (which is actually just the
same IRC channels under the covers.)
Same thing with mailing lists / hyperkitty. If you prefer mailing lists,
fine, stick with mutt or pine or $CLIENT_OF_CHOICE. If you're not into
mailing lists you can read the messages and engage in convo directly in
the hubs interface (we'll probably embed pieces of hyperkitty to do this)
We haven't thought too much about ask integration with hubs yet bc there
was a GSoC project this summer to redesign the UI, but at some point we
could integrate that too.
So the idea behind hubs is to enable folks who don't want to use the raw
services but still want to participate in Fedora to do so.
Does that make more sense / seem more coherent?
