BitchX is the premiere IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It originally was a modified version of the popular ircII client, and the features were eventually merged into the EPIC IRC client. The current development is aimed at merging the client back to a current branch of EPIC and bringing compatibility and stability back to the client, while bringing the features that are BitchX into a new client.
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.

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
