Please avoid flooding in private establishments and official channels (except #test and #). The #debug channel is used by bots for public error reporting (if dumping errors to #debug, bots should ideally be set to not respond to commands in that channel to prevent race/infinite loop conditions).
Anyone wishing to develop bots should use #test for testing.

<section begin=sysops />
 
IRC services are now server up on carbon.li694.22. The core IRC services as well as several bot live on this server. They are run from the sylnt user account out of /home/sylnt/. 
 
 
 
Start and stop scripts are in the ~/bin directory. start.all and stop.all will start and stop each of the services below with the appropriate script in a proper order. start.all is also set in sylnt's crontab to start at reboot. Individual services can be stopped or started with the appropriate script stop.service or start.service where .service is replaced with the suffix listed in the table below.
 
 
 
The services each have a cron.service script, also in ~/bin, that monitors that the service is running and restarts it if it does not find it.  This is done by monitoring the pid, set at startup, and seeing if the job is still running.  cron.all is run at 5 minute intervals from sylnt's crontab as well.

All of /home/sylnt/ started out as a copy from the original server xlefay setup on his systems.  No new files were added to this, only certain services need to be recompiled. Source files for most of the services are found in ~/source, and copies of the original services that ran on original server are in ~/OLD.  Test compiles of some of the services were moved to ~/test before bring up the current versions.
+
===Bot projects / task ideas===
  
Charybdis was compiled with ./configure --prefix=/home/sylnt/charybdis/ --enable-epoll --enable-openssl --enable-ipv6 --disable-assert. Atheme was compiled with  $ ./configure --prefix=/home/sylnt/atheme-services. Iris was configure by running ./compile from the ~/atheme-iris directory.  The bots did not require a recompile from what was transferred from original server.

In addition, nginx is also installed and used to serve IRC logs and such; there's also a reverse proxy vhost present for atheme-iris. Nginx's file structure is the default as supplied by Debian & Ubuntu, meaning, that configuration files are located in '''/etc/nginx/ & vhosts in /etc/nginx/sites-{enabled,available}'''.

Bots

There are a few bots lurking in the Soylent IRC channels besides the services mentioned above.
Anyone wishing to develop bots should use #test or # for testing.
Please avoid flooding in private establishments and official channels (except #test and #). The #debug channel is used by bots for public error reporting (if dumping errors to #debug, bots should ideally be set to not respond to commands in that channel to prevent race/infinite loop conditions).
