Don't think this really warrants a ticket - just beep schilly on IRC and he'll change it :) That page is not part of the Sage docs and so is not part of the Sage codebase. It's just a page on the sagemath.org webserver.

  • Type changed from enhancement to task

It IMHO should be irc.freenode.net.

I was going to post that, but I went and asked in #freenode. Apparently irc. is just an alias to chat. and has always been that way. The main connection instructions on the website also mention chat..

Replying to kini:

$ host irc.freenode.net
irc.freenode.net is an alias for chat.freenode.net.
chat.freenode.net has address 174.143.119.91
chat.freenode.net has address 78.40.125.4
chat.freenode.net has address 213.92.8.4
chat.freenode.net has address 38.229.70.20
chat.freenode.net has address 213.179.58.83
...

That's (currently) true, but IRC is not only the traditional name, but also a well defined term (or protocol), while "chat" can refer to almost everything, so irc.freenode.net is much less ambiguous.

OK, sounds good to me. Now who has write access to the website? :)
