XOOPS Cube project began using IRC channel as a regular. And, Mr. gusagi joins the project to help IRC management & others. For more informations, read the news of XOOPS Cube project.
This new wiki article explains how to connect to XOOPS Cube IRC channel. You can choose your favorite IRC client from a number of clients in any OS, so this article uses Colloquy in Mac OS X. You will get new "How To". And you may add explanations to the page for other OS --- Windows and Linux.
In the sourceforge.net forum, we have discussed whether we should have a IRC channel. And now, we opened a channel for test
- server: irc.freenode.net
- channel: ##xoopscube
- Choose UTF-8 encode in your IRC channel.
"Gusagibot" is joining to the channel always. Gusagibot is a bot who keeps a channel open state. The bod is supplied from Mr, gusagi. Thanks!
We can record logs of IRC. But, we should not use IRC for important topics that we need log. So I don't know whether we need log. Because XOOPS Cube is open world, we may need log of IRC. But, many OSS projects doesn't publish logs, because they don't talk important topics in IRC.
Ummm... At the beginning, test ##xoopscube channel. Then, let's decide rules!
