How you can help

- Start to use IRC, such as the freenode or OFTC networks, today. This is a great way to share and receive expert information on technical topics, or boost your IT career. IRC also helps you improve your communication in real time chat, and exposes you to opportunities to self-develop in a range of directions, such as coding, documenting, art work, translation, outreach, and presentation.
- Run guppy and share your feedback about how easy or hard it was to get started.
- Test guppy's plugins and tell how they can be improved.
- Add your translation.
- Write your own plugin. guppy is in Python 3 with extensible event-driven plugins API. A sample plugin is included in the `extra/` file. Usage information is in the guppy man page and authors information is in the CREDITS file.
- Package guppy for your operating system or distribution.
