Hey Xubuntu team members,

we started voting on a proposal for the default IRC client in today's

In short, what we're voting on is whether to drop XChat for Xubuntu

== Rationale ==

Those who need IRC can still use pidgin and this is a consistent move
in terms of streamlining our default applications (remember the
dropping of GThumb in 14.04).
This decision would be revisited for 15.04, so if we'd see the need, we
could re-add XChat (or hexchat).

== Voting ==

Just reply with +1, 0 or -1 to this thread – you can obviously also
explain why you voted one or the other way. So far, we have 4 votes
from team members for the proposal to drop XChat and 0 against (and 0

Please note that ONLY XUBUNTU TEAM MEMBERS CAN VOTE. Other votes are
ignored, so please don't send a vote and waste bandwidth unless you are
an active member of the Xubuntu team [1].

== End of vote ==

This vote will expire in one week (June 6th, 10:00 UTC), so please send
in your votes in a timely manner.
