The original irchat.el was written by Tor Lillqvist <firstname.lastname@example.org>, but the irchat.el from those days is much different from what it is now, irchat.el is highly ... eh ... dynamic right now.
Thanks for developing are to nam <email@example.com>, cletus <firstname.lastname@example.org> for listening luru's <email@example.com> and Kaizzu's ideas and implementing them. Then after that Kaizzu <firstname.lastname@example.org> and mta <email@example.com> are responsible for developing irchat to what it is now.
There is, undoubtedly, lots of bugs and unintended features left in both the code and the documentation. We welcome any suggestions and really appreciate nice hacks and bug fixes.
The bugs and comments should be send to irchat <firstname.lastname@example.org> which is mailing list for people interested in irchat. To join that list send request to <email@example.com>.
This documentation was Kaizzu's first attempt ever to write emacs-info -like text, and I probably failed miserably. Sorry.
P.S. I (mta) am responsible for the last revision of this text, so you can as well accuse me.
