i've made an irc chat channel on freenode #porteuslinux for anybody who is into that kind of thing.
i try to log in daily, so if you have some query or looking for help, grab your favourite chat client and stop by..

USM's hexchat works. :)

Any commands to get it to connect to #porteuslinux automatically when starting?

Oh, missed this one...

Actually IRC is a properly defined protocol.
Any client understanding/talking such protocol would be of course preferred...
One could think a client the equivalent of a ´app´.

Advertising the existence of a IRC channel is a recommendable initiative.
Thanks @ncmprhnsbl for the initiative
