2. IRC

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is widely used in open source projects because of its powerful real-time communication capability.

We sincerely invite you to join the openGauss IRC channel for discussion.

openGauss provides free and open communication through freenode.net.

The IRC software can be used in all operating systems. Wikipedia provides a comparison of diverse IRC clients. You may select one suitable client for your operating system.

IRC does not require complex configurations. If you do not want to download or install the software, you can use its web client (see at freenode.net).

Select a nickname to join the openGauss IRC channel.
