What is the Documents Project?
The Documents Project, formerly known as Doco-Com, is responsible for creating and maintaining useful resource documentation for the Undernet community. Both new and experienced IRC users will find information here on everything from downloading an IRC client to explanation of the various protocols. It is our aim to make sure that these resources are kept current, and when a need for new documentation arises, it becomes a priority. The project is always interested in feedback from Undernet users and can be reached via e-mail at documents@undernet.org.
For an inside look into our structure and procedures, take a look at the project guidelines.
