don't think it's going to work in 0.6 for sure, updating wiki to reflect that.

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

*NOTE: Consider this module currently more of a fun experiment than a serious project for use in production. Note the 'alpha' tag and have fun!*

= 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"
    conference_server = ""
    listener_port = 7000

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.

= Warning =

The plugin stability, and/or serving compatibility with most of the IRC clients is yet to be determined.

= Install =

This release requires the [ Verse client library] as dependancy and [ Squish] to meld it with the plugin.

 * Clone both the Verse/Squish repo and/or download the latest tips from 'em (in that case you'll have to decompress the tip zips/tarballs)
 * Edit Verse's squish file so that all plugins cept the presence and groupchat ones will be commented
 * In your Squish directory type make install
 * Run squish.lua --use-http into your Verse's directory, and move verse.lua into where mod_ircd files from google code's HG are stored
 * Run squish.lua again
 * Move the mod_ircd.out.lua to your prosody's plugin directory renaming it back to mod_ircd.lua

= Compatibility =
||0.6||Doesn't work||

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