Ubuntu-Au IRC

Like many other Ubuntu teams, Ubuntu-Au uses [wiki:InternetRelayChat IRC] as a form of communication. Most of the communication outside of the mailing list, as well as the fortnightly Ubuntu-Au meetings, take place in the Ubuntu-Au IRC channels:

  • #ubuntu-au is for questions about Ubuntu itself. If you need technical support, you may ask here.

  • #ubuntu-au-chat is for everything else. This is a social place for the Ubuntu-Au community to congregate and chat.

You can connect to the Ubuntu-Au IRC channel using IRC clients such as Pidgin Internet Messenger (Formerly Gaim) or XChat, by pointing your client to irc.freenode.net:6667 and joining the channels listed above.

Channel Guidelines

While in the Ubuntu-Au IRC channels (and in any Ubuntu channel) you are expected to abide by the [http://ubuntu.com/community/conduct Ubuntu Code of Conduct] (CoC). Most of what is applicable to the IRC Channels can be summarised as follows (taken from [http://www.ubuntu.com/community/conduct ubuntu.com]):

  • Be respectful. The Ubuntu community and its members treat one another with respect. Everyone can make a valuable contribution to Ubuntu. We may not always agree, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behaviour and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It's important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. We expect members of the Ubuntu community to be respectful when dealing with other contributors as well as with people outside the Ubuntu project, and with users of Ubuntu.

Meetings

The Ubuntu-Au team's fortnightly meetings also take place in #ubuntu-au. Currently these meetings are held every second Monday, at 0900UTC. More details can be found on the [wiki:AustralianTeam/Meetings Meetings Page]. Anyone is welcome to drop in for the meetings, even if only to eavesdrop.

IRC Ops

IRC Ops are people in an IRC channel who have extra privileges and responsibilities. They are the people to call for any trouble in a channel. To get their attention, type !ops into the channel.

Currently, the Ubuntu-Au IRC Channel has the following Ops:
