Interesting.

I don't know for sure, but I'd say it didn't exist when this forum was created, nor when we were using the previous software. It has to be noted though, that IRC has been quite a standard in the FOSS world.

Unlike a community plugin that appears to haven't been updated in like 5 years IRC is reliable, doesn't eat resources and does only what it's supposed to do, so just like email it will likely outlive all cool and trendy alternatives. Add that it's open, tooling is plenty and writing bots is trivial.
