This was discussed on this list as well.



I have added it to https://wiki.debian.org/DebianIndia as well now. You
can use any xmpp client to join the conference room. Conversations is
the best client for android. On desktop I'd recommend Gajim as it is the
most active and has OMEMO encryption support. Other multi protocol
messengers mostly ignore xmpp and miss basic features and patches are
ignored too.

You'll have to just type the full nickname and user on the other side
will get a notification. So if you type, "praveen: hi" in IRC, I will
get a notification on my xmpp app.

I think this is really cool and I'm happy Abhijith got it working.
Thanks you Abhijith.
