Again,  there is no excuse for racism in Debian.  Other packages have
elided the inappropriate material in the past, as they should.  An IRC
client has no business being racist.  Debian is a distribution that
specifically caters to children; note the debian-junior project.  As it
stands, your package is inappropriate to be on the box my daughter uses.
