details below (apologies for the length).
Like most other Ubuntu teams, ubuntu-ie uses IRC as a form of
communication. Most of the communication outside of the mailing list, as
well as ubuntu-ie meetings take place in the ubuntu-ie IRC channel.
You can connect to the ubuntu-ie IRC channel using IRC clients such as
Gaim Internet Messenger, Pidgin or XChat, by pointing your client to the
Freenode network (irc.freenode.net:6667) and joining the #ubuntu-ie channel.
While in the ubuntu-ie IRC channel (and in any Ubuntu channel) you are
expected to abide by the Ubuntu Code of Conduct (CoC). Most of what is
applicable to the IRC Channel can be summarised as follows (taken from
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.
I hope we will have a positive discussion about hosting release parties
and other matters, should they arise.
