This is pointless and 100% off-topic. The problem is not that all the
information on the 2.7 clients is being handed out via IRC; the problem is
that THERE IS NO INFORMATION! The IRC topic today is/was "When there's
anything to hear, you'll hear it." Doesn't sound like IRC is the place to be
either. The clients will be done when they are done and an announcement will
be made at that time - as repeated messages to the list (not IRC) from DCTI
officials have stated. Bitching about IRC and the history of man isn't going
to get the clients done one second sooner. If it's so important to you, go
to the ftp site, where information is _recorded_, and when the clients come
out you'll be the first to get them.
