Web IRC client service migration
Scheduled Maintenance Report for W3C
This migration has been completed.

The new Web interface is available at: https://webirc.w3.org/
Please note that the web IRC application was changed to The Lounge (https://thelounge.chat/) as the previous application qwebirc was not maintained anymore (no support for Python3).

If you are facing accessibility issues with the Lounge we recommend that you use an IRC client directly from your computer. You can also report those on the project site - https://github.com/thelounge/thelounge
