The Sylphe Project hosts its own IRC powered by ngircd. Whereas it's very basic and not much used, it might become a more useful mean of communication to get in touch with the Sylphe admins.
Zebeth listens on
irc.sylphe.fr on ports 6697 and 9999 (standard SSL IRC ports). Sylphe is all about privacy and that's why we try to use SSL wherever we can. This includes encrypting all communication made through IRC.
