Hello NetHack DevTeam!

May I suggest setting a bot to announce NetHack git repo pushes to the #nethack-dev IRC channel on freenode.net, now that it's on GitHub?

It's really easy to set up and would give people there something to talk about.

How to set it up:

  1. Visit https://github.com/NetHack/NetHack
  2. Click on 'Settings'.
  3. Click on 'Webhooks & Services'.
  4. Click the 'Add Service' and type in/select 'IRC'.
  5. Go through the login/password prompt to continue.
  6. Put in the following details:

Server: chat.freenode.net Room: #nethack-dev Branches: NetHack-3.6.0 Active: Checked

Everything else is optional.

7. Click 'Update service'.

If you do this, GitHub will automatically announce pushes and commits to the #nethack-dev IRC channel.
