Looking back to my own experience when I got involved starting with

IRC was a new concept for me, and I tried to get it going on Pidgin.
Can't remember why it failed exactly, so I let it slide for a bit. Then
I stumbled upon xchat and installed that. After that IRC-ing was a
piece of cake.

However, I do think that in general, most users wouldn't think about
needing IRC, so perhaps it should be an add-on rather than default
install if space is needed for other things.

There was a "discussion" on
with regards to this, but I added for greater clarity.

Please head over the to and discuss your
opinions. Please note that *not* installing xchat or xchat-gnome by
default does not mean that we are dropping it from the distribution.
