  It is indeed a good idea to have a reference pointing to the channel 
  name and IRC network/server in the software directory listing. 
  Not all developers or users have IRC channels for their apps, but those 
  who do have them make good use of such live interaction forums. 
  For eg. #blackbox at OPN(, #nautilus at 
  and #gimp on The development and usage of the above programs 
  is greatly influenced by this live forum. 
  I think it would be good thing to have a field for the IRC channel in the 
  software listing, even if there is no such channel for a particular program. 
  Atleast by having such a field developers know that IRC channels are a
  definate resource.
