> Hi list,
> I want to let you know that I have registered a "gambas" group on the
> Freenode IRC network [1]. This means that we have first-class presence
> on the network, which in turn doesn't really mean anything, except that
> we can give out project cloaks for the Gambas project now (I just got mine)
> and that I get an excuse to remind you that the channels exist at all.
> In case you don't know, Freenode is an IRC network dedicated to FOSS or
> peer-directed projects, and lots of well-known projects have a presence
> and support channels there, including Wikipedia, various Linux distri-
> butions, various programming languages, myriads of libraries and other
> software. It's not in our disadvantage to mix Gambas into that.
> The #gambas channel existed there for many years, before the group was
> registered, and didn't see much traffic since I joined. I got the idea
> to revive it when we recently had a bunch of questions here about native
> component development.
> Most questions are adequately discussed on the mailing list, because
> they require experimentation, reading code, careful wording, attachments,
> archival... But walking someone through the process of writing their first
> native component or solving an installation issue, for instance, can
> benefit from interactive realtime discussion. Therefore I think IRC can
> complement the mailing lists quite well.
> There are two channels:
>   #gambas     : general-purpose: about the language, components, libraries
>   #gambas-dev : about the C part of Gambas: compiler, interpreter, C API
> I hope that some of you, who hang around the network anyway, bring their
> expertise into the channels and that people with questions will find them.
> I added them to the wiki [2] already.
> Regards,
> Tobi
