Internet Relay Chat Discussion Channel

SCI-Flex being an Open Source project from its inception works primarily around a developer mailing list. However, in order to speed up the development activities and to have real time chat between developers, we decided that it would be better to have a public discussion channel on our behalf. Do to the immense popularity and guaranteed stability and 24/7 service found in the freenode IRC network we decided that it would be great to host the SCI-Flex discussion channel on freenode.

Since SCI-Flex is an Open Source project and since we need to reveal all forms of communication and important project related discussions to all the members of the community, it would invariably be good to have the channel publicly logged and also available to anyone interested in seeing it. Due to limitations we experience, so far there isn't a public chat log in place. We are at present working on this feature and expect to have this in place by the end of August 2008.

We invite all those who are interested in SCI-Flex to join ##sci-flex @ More information on freenode can be found here. You can learn about IRC in here. Pidgin and Mibbit (web based) are some of the IRC clients I use.
