ChiliProject is not maintained anymore. Please be advised that there will be no more updates.

We do not recommend that you setup new ChiliProject instances and we urge all existing users to migrate their data to a maintained system, e.g. Redmine. We will provide a migration script later. In the meantime, you can use the instructions by Christian Daehn.



#chiliproject on freenode

The official IRC channel of ChiliProject is #chiliproject on the freenode IRC network. Most of ChiliProject's developers hang around there so almost all of the decision making takes place in IRC. The channel is public and fully logged.

Connecting to IRC


You can use freenode's browser-based irc client to join the channel.
