    I am making an IRC plugin, it first started as a private project, for 1 server, but I am thinking about releasing it to the public. Would anyone be interested?

    Try releasing your plugin on the 'plugin releases' forum, be sure to explain why your plugin is better than all the others and why everyone should use yours.

    As well consider chat formatting plugins like mChat and HeroChat (ChannelChat even?) so you have a slight edge.

    And make sure that your plugin follows the bot Terms of Service on possible IRC networks (like EsperNet).

    I haven't used monsterIRC,
    I tried out craftIRC, and found it personally hard to set up.

    Scratch that, I just saw "MonsterIRC" and it's probably just what I needed.

    So... Does anyone want me to release it?

    Atomic Fusion

    Even if you're not going to maintain it, why not? If someone wanted to pick it up and develop it further, it would be a different starting point than other IRC plugins, and evidently it has some advantage over other plugins, else you likely wouldn't have developed it. Basically I would encourage the sharing of anything and everything.
    Question: does a single bot connect to IRC and relay all the Minecraft messages, or is there one connection per Minecraft player?
