I approved this. I did leave some comments elsewhere in the thread, but
I think we can continue to iterate on the idea.

What you wrote there looks pretty good to me. Copying it here for
purposes of discussion:

where the IRC link goes to Freenode's webchat, and the mailing list link
goes to https://git-scm.com/community.

The other proposal is from Christian, who wrote:

I think the "[Outreachy]" advice is good, and worth adding to yours. I
think linking to the "community" page is a good idea for Christian's, as
it has more tips on using the mailing list.

I'd leave it up to individual mentors whether they want to mention IRC
(based on whether or not they actually use IRC themselves).
