I would like to have a little favor from anyone of you guys here
in ubuntu-desktop. Recently, I made a simple app that allows the user
to get live chat from other users easily, via "Help > System > Live Chat
Support". It's the http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuLiveChatSupport, and
currently I can't tell how stable it is, but just a few of my friends "3
friends" just test it, and they said it's cool. Now I'm writing to you
guys and asking for help, because it really needs rigorous testing
before it can be a good help.
I got here the links of the debian packages, and the patched
Anyone here would like to test them out, please send me comments at
joelbryan.juliano at gmail.com, in the wiki page, or this mailing-list.

ubuntu-live-support (0.3.14-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Due to security imposed delays for freenode registration, because of
abusive bots, delays are now used in nick registration.
* Delay time can change dynamically, this release fixes by capturing the
exact delay time and add 20 more seconds if the machine is busy and
doing multitasking jobs. The constant 200 seconds is removed.

ubuntu-live-support (0.3.14-1) unstable; urgency=high
* Initial .deb release
* Made alot of changes over the last release, and now it support an easy
to use automated registration system, which features nick availability
checking that check if the nick is registered to someone else.

release, now it's more attractive, and professional looking - easy to
* The user's automated buddy list also improve, the localized channels
are now added, and #ubuntu and #ubuntu-<locale> have a group called
* It still needs a fully functional regular expression to recognize
NickServ's NOTICE Handler, other than /320/ and /433/ IRC server
numerical values. A message telling the user that a particular nick is
not available will only be possible if a user is online and/or a user
has been identified to nickserv's services.

The software is under consideration, and I really don't have a large
user-base to test it. Please I need everyone's cooperation to test it.
To anyone who pioneer for testing, I'm really really grateful for all
your efforts. All of these great wonders of Open Source is none without
pioneers and volunteers!
