Purpose Provides a place for developers and users to meet and discuss
Maintainer(s) Eugene Sandulenko (Sev)

For all kinds of live discussions we use #scummvm @ freenode.net IRC channel. All ScummVM developers get an operator status there, so if you have some questions, talk to them. There are several notes about usage of this medium:

  • IRC is not the best place for informing everyone about some important development conclusions. I.e. when you discussed something and came up with a solution, it's best to e-mail results to scummvm-devel. That is, don't expect everyone in the team to know that you uttered something at #scummvm.
  • All developers who want to get operator status should register with NickServ. Assistance with registration is provided here.
  • Most people on FreeNode have so-called anti-spam feature turned on. That is, you will not be able to PM them unless you registered with NickServ

We have several bots living there:

  • LeChuck -- our own bot. It's primary usage is infobotting and logs.
  • lisppaste -- paste bot. It notifies when ScummVM-related pastes are posted here.
  • CIA -- commit notification bot. It notifies on all commits. Further information could be found on CIA.vc site.
  • ScummBot -- build bot. It notifies when one or more ports change their status. There's more information on the Buildbot page.
  • echelog-1 -- log bot. Another bot that logs the channel and places them here. There are also stats available.
