Well with hangout I can call talkyoo which is our conference call phone 
line so you could use a cell phone or landline to call in - is this 
acceptable? I'm not as much as a stickler about non free software since 
google has put in the effort to make it run on so many platforms + pays 
for interns to work GSoC on our project - I give them some slack ;) Plus 
Google hangout is quite cool in general, we use it for LibreOffice on 
multiple different committees and what not.

But if this isn't acceptable, IRC is fine - just a lot slower and room 
for misunderstanding.

If you can call a US phone number for free, talkyoo is pretty nice so we 
could couple hangout with talkyoo and avoid you being forced to use 
closed source software.

Let me know.
