n0theme? funny!

Monday, August 29th, 2005

One of the people who used to be involved with our project, brian, has decided to fork Atheme. For some reason, there was a communications breakdown with him. Anyway, his project is located at

A disappointing part of this is that he has decided to take swipes at the development team. I’m not going to dispute that things were not necessarily too great with brian for the last few months, and we were fairly sure that brian did not agree with our direction — so we found a way to work through the issue without him. Several people had an issue with him leading up to this fork.

That aside, I would like to personally wish him luck with his fork of Atheme, perhaps he can come up with some great security-oriented ideas that we have yet to establish. However, Atheme will still live on, no matter what he wishes to say about our direction. We are going nowhere, and intend to stay around for a very long time.

For you gentoo users out there — beu will be importing Atheme into portage sometime this week. That will be something to look forward to!

As for me ircd-wise, I have found a nice comfortable home amongst the ircd-hybrid team. This is still a little wierd… but hey! Dianora has a lot of excellent ideas, that could shake up the IRCd world. So that should be interesting. Update (09/02): Also on freenode staff.
