Incorrect. Until otherwise stated, caf runs the project off of Sourceforge which is where www.bitchx.org is pointed to. I saw what dan said on Freenode and he's not the voice of the project.
If caf decides to start using github as the primary codebase then we'll update the site here to reflect that change. In the meantime dan and I have had this conversation already and caf is lead on the project and if he tells me to move the pointers to github on here I will do so.
The info here is dated. Active development of BitchX continues, see http://www.bitchx.ca for project info. For current versions check out the github repository at https://github.com/BitchX .
Unfortunately the DCC_MAX_AUTOGET_SIZE has some limits and cannot be set very high. I'm not sure if this is was intended to be so. --Ann (http://www.quotesdb.info)

You've proven time and again that you're only interest in
this project is to discredit anyone associated with it.
People do not have to justify or supply you or anyone else
for reasons they might have in doing something such as
pana had done with tcl.c. You're justification for bitching
about this is simply because you can and nothing else.
You've supplied the community with no credible truth to
anything you've stated and you've proven beyond a doubt
that you're intent is only to discredit and slander persons
that in the past have been involved with the project.
My explanations for what has transpired in the past are to
the best of my ability to explain. pana has every right like
any other software author to hide pieces of their code
behind the license they are using if it allows them to do so
simply because they can or for whatever reason they pull
out of their ass.
The code is what it is. It was released by pana to a
handful of people over the years to help support various
platforms they wanted tcl support ported. The goal was
accomplished and it was never as big of a deal as you've
made it out to be with these petty, childish, and
inaccurate rants you have posted here.
When you're able to stop making slanderous comments
and actually show valid proof of what you're saying,
someone will give a rats ass. As I've stated and others
have in the past; the original tcl.c, which has been
modified over the years, was so presented at the time to
persons developing eggdrop at the time and at no point did
they ever see any similarity between what pana had put
together and what they were using. The only people that
had a right to bitch or complain never said a word and that
to me makes you suspect as only being a shit disturbing
little prick that wants to cause a scene for his own
exposure since you have no signature on radar anywhere
else in your pathetic life.
You can continue writing these pathetic comments,
change gears and come after me or anyone else you like.
The burden of proof is on your shoulders and whether
anyone chooses to respond to your mediocre,
hypothetical, and outright slanderous accusations is up to
them. I've decided to let you stew from time to time and
respond at a later date just because.. I can. I've seen
that any direct response to you is always followed up by
these ignorant accusations that we're hiding something or
that we have to come up with proof to back up what we're
saying and have been for years. Wrong. In this case the
license clearly gives pana and anyone else using the same
type of license the right to not disclose portions of the
code which they author. He went the extra step, included
others that were outsiders to review what he had wrote.
They never came at him and they never released the code
out of respect for pana. Others directly involved in the
project also demonstrated the same loyalty and respect for
pana over the years and never once released that piece of
code except to persons who were part of the project in
Is your bitterness driven from the fact that you some how
were attempting to be involved with the project and were
rejected due to your fragile personality problems? It
seems to me that you spent a lot of time flaming pana
and others (myself included) all for some sort of attention
you could not gain any other way? You should seriously
seek some form of medical intervention for these issues
and step away from your computer for a long time to
come. You're unstable and you cry over things that only
matter to people that have no life at all or are just trying
to shine a spotlight on them by attempting to create
drama where there was none. You, by example, have
shown the community exactly the type of person you are
with these repeated false accusations and attempts to
discredit persons who are only doing the best they could to
supply the public with information and access to a product
of interest. This makes you the boy the cried wolf one too
> We don't have a

There would have been no need to hide only the tcl behind a binary to keep from "too many implementations" of it in the *first place* if that were (anywhere close to being) true. When you explain this w/o using an out such as "the license doesnt require us to explain", maybe you might have some credibility. Or are you just going to redirect people to the forums, only to discredit what is true?

Again, I think you need to grow up and get over this already. We don't have a need to sanitize and hide things from people.
Re: BitchX is not distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL!!!
It's amazing that you would actually attempt to fire this argument up again. seth, you have no basis in fact for anything you say. You accuse those of us involved with the cilent of a great many things yet not once over the years has anything malicious resulted of tcl.c and those using it as part of the client. This is a fact.
The reason that the client was so widely used is even though tcl.c was kept from the public, which again was within Colton's right to do so under the terms of the BSD license, is because unlike a number of people out there, he never one time allowed nor himself misused this piece of withheld code to perform any sort of malicious behaviour with the cilent which could or did result in damage, invasion, or any other illegal activity.
You have ranted about this and attempted to make yourself sound as if you are the only source that can be right. I am stating thing based purely in fact and facts that I didn't fabricate or invent but that were there predating my taking up the lead for this project from the PR standpoint.
Your accusations are without any substance and your arrogance is clear even though you seem to accuse me of a number of things including being arrogant which couldn't be further from the truth considering I've stated nothing but the truth.
All of this said, you are simply whining like a little bitch because someone would not share something with you that you wanted and have been repeatedly denied. With the close of the 1.x dist you no longer have any grounds to complain or whine about this issue nor do you have any rights to continue to accuse people of things which you have never had any basis in fact for in the first place. good day and good bye..

I await the facts, not a hollow defense, only on the tcl.o/tcl.c code - not the rest of the client.

No apology is needed or will ever arrive while the issue is this way.

Where sin has nothing more than arrogance, is here. Over there, he has friends to defend him. The pressure that made this measure necessary was the same that made the source availible(albeit sanitized and purposely outdated).

Amazing how you can say a lot and yet say nothing about the issue. You bring no facts to the table about tcl.c, and only release a sanitized, and probably old module of tcl.c. With dates in 1996 of the last known tcl module source, it is highly unlikely that this is the same version that was in binary modules- and more of arrogance about "too many implementations".
