Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Belongs these:

IRC access for the chat?

Offer an XMPP method for chat

Protocol and server for chat.stackoverflow.com

I think a plugin for Pidgin (popular free/open source messaging client) that adds support for SO protocol (used in StackOverflow chat) is really needed. Sorry, I myself have no experince with network programming and writing plugin for pidgin. But maybe somebody was intrested to do that. If nobody found, maybe I try myself to do that.
