New users often don't know where their problem is. If my system locks
up when I login to the desktop, would I look for #fedora-kernel? Or
#fedora-gnome? Do I even know I am running gnome?

I think spreading our resources this way is a bad idea.

is answered and leads to another however.

I agree, but only where such channels have a community of users and
other purpose. I think trying to start such for purely support reasons
is spreading our limited resources too thin.
