#summary IRC to XMPP interface to allow IRC clients to connect to chatrooms
#labels Stage-Alpha

= Introduction =

Whether you like it or not, XMPP is the future, but that pesky IRC just won't go away :)

With this module you can set up a special host on your server to allow connections from IRC clients and bots. They are able to join XMPP chatrooms on a specified conference server.

= Usage =
In your config file put something similar to the following:

Component "" "ircd"
    port = 6667 -- Optional
    conference_server = ""

If you don't want your IRC users to have connectivity outside your server then there is no need for the hostnames you specify to be valid DNS entries.

= Compatibility =

= Todo =
  * Authentication
  * SSL
  * Many improvements to handling of IRC and XMPP
