I'm looking for an IRC bot, mostly to provide logs of IRC conversations. I want and extensible one that is written in Python, so that I can add extra features (e.g. announcements of subversion commits). I want one that is in mature, usable, and available in Debian.

apt-cache search python irc bot gives me two answers:

  • libsoap-lite-perl (wha..?)
  • supybot

Looks like I'll be investigating supybot. It appears to have a lot of features that I'm not interested in. Some are interesting.
