'''IRC''' is an excellent public forum -- both for helping users and for getting to know other committers.  We have official group status on [http://freenode.net Freenode].  You can connect to Freenode by pointing your [[#How Do I Choose An IRC Client? | IRC client]] at irc.freenode.net.

These are the main channels we maintain:
 
* [irc://irc.freenode.net/#eclipse #eclipse] - questions from plug-in developers and users, general catch-all when specific channels do not exist. You can read [http://echelog.com/logs/browse/eclipse previous discussions].
 
* [irc://irc.freenode.net/#eclipse-dev #eclipse-dev] - Eclipse contributors discussion and socializing - a good rule of thumb is this channel is for the development of org.eclipse.* plug-ins

== More Info ==
 
 
A [http://echelog.com/logs/browse/eclipse log] of the the traffic on #eclipse is available on the web. There is also an actively maintained [[IRC FAQ]] in which most questions eventually appear -- feel free to contribute! ''Much of the content was born [http://eclipsewiki.editme.com/IrcFaq here].''
 
 
If you are a committer on an eclipse project, then you can get yourself a developer cloak.  A developer cloak identifies you as a committer on the Eclipse project, gives you some privileges on the channel and masks your hostname.  If you would like a developer cloak, please contact '''paulweb515''' or '''nitind''' on IRC.
 
 
=== How Do I Start Using IRC? ===
 
 
* First, choose an IRC client (see [[#How Do I Choose An IRC Client? | below]]).
 
* Then, read the [http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#nicksetup Freenode Setup FAQ].
 
 
=== How Do I Choose An IRC Client? ===
 
 
* If you are having trouble choosing an IRC client, try [http://chatzilla.hacksrus.com/ ChatZilla] which runs inside Firefox. [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/instant-messaging-and-chat Thunderbird] Konversation and xchat are also widely used options.
 
* For GNOME you can try [http://www.smuxi.org/ Smuxi].
 
* Or, if you're familiar with the IM client Gaim (now called [http://pidgin.im/pidgin/home/ Pidgin]), it also works great with IRC on both Windows and Linux.
 
* Mac users, try [http://www.google.ca/search?q=mac+irc+client one of these].
 
* Another choice is [http://www.eclipse.org/ecf ECF's IRC client], which runs as a view inside of Eclipse.
 
* If you cannot connect due to firewall issues or prefer to not install anything, try http://webchat.freenode.net/ to connect via HTTP.
 
 
=== OK, I'm Set Up, Now What? ===
 
 
* Read the [[IRC_FAQ | FAQ]].
 
* Join a [[#Main Channels | channel]].
 
* Post a question, or answer one.
