This is a different case, and I agree it should be held in #juju itself.

My worry is that there are two very separate tracks of juju
conversation today: very low-level development conversations, and juju
usage. I'm concerned that the people that are interested in juju usage
are getting the wrong impression about the channel. They may be
intimidated by the high-volume conversations between developers that
work closely every day in low-level aspects that are completely
uninteresting as far as charm development and usage goes.

I don't think you have to keep track of it right now, even though I do
suggest you (and anyone else interested) hang around in both channels.
The suggestion isn't for the developers to move away from #juju, but
for low-level conversations to be held in a channel that do not
overload the main channel in a way that people that want to make
questions, suggestions, or anything else about charms and juju in
general should be intimidated by feeling they are out of context.
