DotGNU Project - GNU Freedom for the Net








DotGNU IRC Channel

The irc channel #dotgnu on irc.freenode.net is one of the main communication tools of the DotGNU project. See below for a list of other irc channels which are relevant for the DotGNU project.

The logs of #dotgnu are always available here: http://ajmitch.linuxworks.co.nz/.

Weekly IRC Meetings

DotGNU holds weekly meetings to discuss any issues of relevance; to allow the developers to catch up with each other; and to allow new members to ask questions and find out how to join in.

The meetings are conducted via IRC in the channel at

    Saturday 0900 UTC

Note: If you use the GNU operating system (e.g. GNU/Linux, the popular combination of the GNU system with the kernel called Linux) or a Unix system, then the command "date; date -u" will give you your current time in both local and UTC, allowing you do determine when the next meeting will occur.

#dotgnu Channel Rules

  1. Treat everyone with kindness, even if you don't like what they say.
  2. When there is an active on-topic conversation (i.e. something that concerns the DotGNU project, or some of its development projects), you are welcome to contribute in a constructive manner, but please don't otherwise interrupt the conversation.
  3. If necessary, the above rules will be enforced by means of channel moderation.
  4. When there is no active on-topic conversation, off-topic chatter is welcome. (Building good relationships between DotGNU people is beneficial to the project). Such off-topic chatter may be interrupted by serious DotGNU-related discussion at any time.

list of other irc channels

  • One DotGNU development project, phpGroupware, has an irc channel of their own: #phpgroupware on irc.freenode.net.
  • The #c# channel on irc.freenode.net is a general (i.e. not specific to DotGNU) channel for C#-related discussions.
  • #rdfig on irc.freenode.net is the channel of the W3C RDF Interest Group, a good channel for discussion of RDF and the semantic web in general.
  • The future of "web application" user interfaces may be XWT or something like it. The XWT project has an irc channel #xwt on irc.freenode.net.
