Of course - the channel name kindle-dev is a dynamic name.
It does not exist until someone creates it (by entering it as the first person to use it - which also makes them channel god).
That might be a bit confusing to a newbie that goes looking for it in the channel list and not finding it (because no one is using it at that moment in time).
It might be better to either add that channel name to the chat server as a permanent channel (even if empty), or
Advertise the main channel in this thread (which is never empty - SnowWhite lives there).
Edit: OK - I did it this morning, but I am not all that reliable for a channel god.
PS: We should probably spend some time getting the conference room plug-in working on our own Jabber server - it does not have this "permanent, empty room" problem that IRC has.
