So we already have the ha-wg and ha-wg-techincal mailing lists around on
the linux fundation servers that should serve as coordination between
projects (tho it appears we rarely use them).

We could use an IRC equivalent on freenode.. #ha-wg ? the channel is
free at moment.

I don't see single projects mailing lists or IRC channels disappearing
any time soon and it doesn't make sense to kill them all either.
Some lists will disappear in time as the projects will slowly become
obsoleted. The issue here is that we can't really force it. It has to be
a natural process. Look at cman for example. True we obsoleted it in the
new world, but effectively cman will not die till RHEL6 support ends in
several years from now.
