   That is good, but it needs to say how to invoke the feature.

  * New Modes and Packages in Emacs 22.1
+ ** Rcirc is now part of the Emacs distribution.
+ Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of instant communication over the
+ Internet. It is mainly designed for group (many-to-many) communication
+ in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one
+ communication.
+ Rcirc has simple defaults and clear and consistent behaviour.  Message
+ arrival timestamps, activity notification on the modeline, message
+ filling, nick completion, and keepalive pings are all enabled by
+ default, but can easily be adjusted or turned off.  Each discussion
+ takes place in its own buffer and there is a single server buffer per
+ connection.  
+ To start an IRC session, type M-x irc, and follow the prompts for
+ server, port, nick and initial channels.
