Core Coding:


Brainjar2s.jpg Brain is responsible for maintaining the main InspIRCd package including the core and many of the standard modules, and he develops a lot of the modules, and does most of the bug fixes. Brain is also involved with many other projects such as the WinBot IRC Bot, Botnix IRC Bot, IRC Defender, The Seven Spells Of Destruction and The ChatSpike IRC network. Despite rumors to the contrary, Brain can create code which does not come with free bugs Tongue.gif


File:av-1.jpg Craig is responsible for this wonderful website you are currently looking at, he also has a knack for shellscript and Makefiles and has made the ./configure script with Makefiles in InspIRCd. He has also created a few modules, and done several bugfixes. Despite rumours to the contrary, Craig does a lot of actual development, and has added several missing features and bug fixes to the IRCd and its modules.



w00t was the catalyst behind the documentation for InspIRCd, writing the very first real documentation which is the basis of the initial text on this wiki. w00t was eventually given full SVN commit access which allowed him to take a more active role in the development of InspIRCd, and is invaluable in finding problems and fixing them.


Mudcrab.jpg Om was developing third-party modules for many months (if not years) before he was given full access at the start of 2006. Om is responsible for the GnuTLS and OpenSSL SSL modules which are available for use in InspIRCd, they are the first ever successful attempt at modulizing SSL support in any irc daemon.


{insert something funkeh here} Special primarily does bugfixes, improves the module API, and creates new modules. He's also special.


{insert something funkeh here} Poached from the atheme project, pippijn has made many suggestions and done lots of testing of the 1.1 branch, and is currently developing xmlrpc support for InspIRCd.


{insert something funkeh here} Jamie has contributed many patches to the 1.1 build of InspIRCd, saving us a great deal of time when fixing bugs. He was promoted to developer during the beta period of 1.1.

Code Contributors:


  • typo has created several modules, generally oper related. He is also an 'ideas' kinda guy.


  • LeaChim contributed a patch to enable +qa prefixes in 1.1, plus many suggestions and bug reports.


  • With a solid IRC background, consisting of Atheme IRC Services and other projects, nenolod has the experience and ninja coding skillz to make things work.


  • BuildSmart contributed a patchset for 1.0 which allows InspIRCd to compile and run on Mac OS X.


The people below have been involved in testing over the duration of development, without their combined effort, InspIRCd would surely have been a failure. Thanks Tongue.gif
