I have registered the #krbdev channel on Freenode IRC
(irc.freenode.net) for the purposes of MIT Kerberos developer instant
messaging chat. We have been using a Jabber chat room at MIT, but
non-MIT Jabber accounts have repeatedly had problems with joining, so
we are moving to IRC. Also, other open source projects tend toward
using IRC, and it's more accessible to non-MIT developers.
For more info about Freenode, see http://freenode.net/
There is an existing Freenode channel #kerberos for general Kerberos
discussion and support.
There are no logs of the #krbdev channel currently, but some
developers have expressed interest in having logging of the channel.
Brandon Allbery and others run a bot (named "lopbot") on #kerberos
(among others) that provides logging and other services. Is there
interest in asking the lopbot maintainers to have it join and log
#krbdev? Are there alternative IRC logging bot solutions that people
