=== How to read messages exchanged when you're offline ===
 +
 
 +
IRC, unlike other chat systems, doesn't keep when you're offline. In order to be notified of relevant communications you can either look at the [http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/irclogs/ channel logs] or setup an IRC proxy.
 +
 
 +
The most common IRC proxies are [http://wiki.znc.in/ZNC znc] and [https://bip.milkypond.org/ bip]. See the following guides to configure them:
 +
 
 +
* [https://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/notes-bip-IRC-proxy/README Installation notes for Fedora/RH-like] and [https://kashyapc.fedorapeople.org/notes-bip-IRC-proxy/bip.conf example bip.conf] contributed by Kashyap Chamarthy
 +
* ZNC [https://dague.net/2014/09/13/my-irc-proxy-setup/ configuration notes] contributed by Sean Dague
 +
* [https://weechat.org/ WeeChat] IRC client combines proxy and client, and allows you to run the client in a shell and access that client additionally from a web client or Android app.
 +
 
 +
=== IRC meetings ===
 +
 
 +
The OpenStack project holds its various public meetings on IRC.  See [[Meetings]] for details.

'''Many IRC channels are logged and [http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/irclogs/ recordings are publicly accessible]'''. If you're concerned about privacy consider using a [https://freenode.net/kb/answer/cloaks cloak], [https://freenode.net/kb/answer/chat tor], hide your real name and be mindful not to write sensitive data in these channels.

IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, is often used as a real-time communication capability with open source projects. We're pretty proud of the friendly vibe in the OpenStack channels and invite anyone wanting to ask questions or talk about all things OpenStack to the channels.

IRC software can be found for all operating systems. The IRC clients comparison chart on Wikipedia can help you pick one for your operating system.

You don't have to have a complex setup to use IRC. You can use the web client for Freenode, which doesn't require any download or setup. Just pick a nickname and join #openstack: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=openstack,openstack-dev.


How to read messages exchanged when you're offline

IRC, unlike other chat systems, doesn't keep when you're offline. In order to be notified of relevant communications you can either look at the channel logs or setup an IRC proxy.

The most common IRC proxies are znc and bip. See the following guides to configure them:

IRC meetings

The OpenStack project holds its various public meetings on IRC. See Meetings for details.

OpenStack IRC channels (chat.freenode.net)

If you want to start a new IRC channel, please consult with the InfrastructureTeam in #openstack-infra or at openstack-infra@lists.openstack.org to ensure it gets registered appropriately.

Many IRC channels are logged and recordings are publicly accessible. If you're concerned about privacy consider using a cloak, tor, hide your real name and be mindful not to write sensitive data in these channels.
