Live rustc discussion channel for beginners?

If I wanted to get into rustc development, where do I ask questions like how/why
a code exists or works, or how to most efficiently rebuild the compiler when
working on a specific part of the compiler etc.? I know about these channels:

  • #rustc on Mozilla IRC channel: almost dead? I see no activity even though I'm
    in the channel every time I'm in front of my computer (about 8 hours a day).

  • #compiler on Discord: I see questions from beginners in the channel, but
    they're answered very rarely. Doesn't seem like a good place for beginner
    questions.

  • Zulip: I don't see a stream for beginner questions in the #compiler channel.

Is there a rustc beginners channel that I'm unaware of?

Thanks
