IRC channels

The following channels have been registered on the Freenode network for Software Heritage usage.

  • #softwareheritage: general discussions about the project (currently unused)
  • #swh: ditto, in case we end up preferring the short version
  • #swh-devel: public development discussions
  • #swh-team: private discussions of the core team
  • #swh-sysadm: operations team discussions/bots

If you do IRC, consider joining the channels.

IRC authentication

You should register their nick with NickServ using:

/nick <USERNAME>
/msg nickserv register <PASSWORD> <EMAIL>

You will then receive an e-mail containing a link to activate you account. After doing so, you need to configure your client to auto-authenticate. The recommanded way of doing that is using SASL authentication.

For Weechat:

/set irc.server.freenode.sasl_username <USERNAME>
/set irc.server.freenode.sasl_password <PASSWORD>

Freenode also supports authentication via TLS client certificates.


IRC access list

To auto-voice people with a registered nick (only doable by people with +fA access modes will be able to do it), add them to the channel access list:

/msg chanserv access #swh-devel add zack +V
