[OSM-talk] Cleanup of Wiki Page "Contact_channels"

I just wanted to paste the link to
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contact_channels into a message to a
newbie and checked if the content of page is up-to-date. By checking the
page some questions arised:

The page lists three XMPP channels. I checked if the English and the
Austrian are still in use. The English channel is out of use. The last
message is from 2016-11-22. There is currently about *one* message per
month. When I joined today, one other user was online. (#osm at
irc.oftc.net has 250 users and is active based on my own observations)

I was unable to check Austrian channel. My account at jabber.ccc.de is
not able to join, I get an error 403.

I did not check the Slovakian channel.

Are there any objections against moving the English channel into a
section called "formerly used communication channels"?

The page also lists a Teamspeak server. Because I avoid to install
proprietary software on my computer, I cannot test if it is in use. Are
there any objections against moving it to the section "formerly used
communication channels"? I have never heard of the use of Teamspeak for
communication inside the OpenStreetMap project.

I will drop a note on the Talk page of that wiki page for those people
who are interested in that page but do not read this mailing list.

Best regards
