Internet Relay Chat (IRC) us a real time communication tool (chat), which facilitates fast troubleshooting and development. Because it is real time and at any given time, people are logged in from around the world make it a very powerful tool. IRC, has a major drawback of not archiving and support of threaded conversations, so it should not be used for critical decisions that should be discussed throughly (use E-mail lists for that). It is however amazing useful for realtime development and support.

Our IRC channels (rooms) are located on and can be connected to via several different client programs:

  • gaim
  • mozilla-chat
  • xchat
  • and many others

To connect to our channels, use the following:
