Building an open-source community via IRC

Hey guys, there’s this thing called IRC, you should really check it out. I don’t know if IRC usage is a Linux thing, but there seems to be a void of Eclipse people on IRC.

Do you want fast answers to your Eclipse-related questions?
Do you want to kill some time bitching about the latest build?

Well then, please check #eclipse @ irc.freenode.net

If you use firefox, there’s this neat plugin called ChatZilla which brings IRC to your browser. Install it, then just click the link found on this posting to get your Eclipse IRC on.

I should also mention (since I’m a committer) that ECF has a basic IRC provider available for download.

Also, since Gunnar posted his pictures, I’ll post one of mine 🙂

    I should since I’m a committer on that project.

    I however didn’t mention it because the IRC provider still needs quite a bit of work.
