|| Beirut Routing Committee
Welcome. The Beirut Routing Committee is responsible for the selection and maintenance of the servers and services.
I will write more info later.
For a period of 7 months the Beirut IRC Network was using the plain IRCu (the universial IRC deamon). This month,
October, we have updated the servers and we switched to the Nefarious IRCu. The Beirut IRC Network is using the
srvx services.We are also monitoring the network with NeoStats. The Game bot is on it's own server and it's a service
actually. For more info regarding the services you may ask in #Service
or check their webpage
. So, what are the features, modes and things
which the Routing Committee is taking care of on the Beirut IRC Network ? Here you go:
- Routing Committee
The Administrator of the Beirut Routing Committee is Dimitar Tnokovski, on IRC known as Mitko. Yes, that is him ;)
If you are interested how the voting goes, and if you think Mitko is the only one who decides about a server, then
you are wrong. Well, that's the point of this page, to make the things clear, no ? The
Beirut Admin Committee is voting for every application
which goes thru the Routing Committee. The Routing Committee decides if the server is stable, and if it's qualified
to link to the Beirut IRC Network. After the Routing Committee Administrator (Mitko) approves the server the Admin
Committee has fully right to accept or reject the server. So, it can be said this way: the Beirut Admin Commiittee
is in very close relation with the Beirut Routing Committee. If you wanna know anything else, feel free to visit us.
Our channel on IRC is #Routing and our email address is routing at beirut.com .
If you are interested in linking a server here, make sure you'll read the whole page. You must use the same IRC
deamon as the other servers. At the moment, it is Nefarious IRCu 0.4.0. Your server must be running on, at least
2Mbps connection (international) and it must not be on the same ISP or Hosting company as any other server which
is linked to the Beirut IRC Network. You must accept anything that this page says in order to link to our network.
Your server must be running on a FreeBSD or a Linux machine. You are allowed to add only one local oper in the start.
Your server must be active in order to get another global operator. You are not allowed to add any operator, either local
or global before the request for an oper is reviewed by the Beirut Admin Committee. Your server must reach a number
of around 50 clients before it gets PERM LINK. The
IRC Operator policy applies to *everyone* except the Network Administrators. Make sure you read it while you apply.
We hope you are not scared to apply now. So, if you agree with all these "rules" and you are really interested in
helping our network which is a non-profit organization, feel free to fill out the
server link application.

- NEW Oper features
Unlimited Oper query. The Admin Committee members now have "Network Administrator" in their WHOIS. Global IRC Operators have
"IRC Operator" in their WHOIS. Local have "IRC Operator" too, but you need to do extended WHOIS to see them.
Network Administrators, Global IRC Operators and Local IRC Operators may SETHOST now, also they may use perm SETHOST in their
ircd config (ircd.conf) file. Opers have .opers.beirut.com as their hidden host instead of the .users.beirut.com.
Note that you must /oper yourself first before you set the +x mode. Network Administrators can also do /check nickname,
which is a WHOIS too, and they don't have to use the OS bot. All users connected on the network may be listed by /check *
Topics are bursted after a netsplit.So, you don't have to re-set topics after every netsplit.
From now on, full address is shown in the topics (before it was the nickname only).
OPMODE is disabled in registered channels to prevent abuse.
- NEW USER features
Using the /NickServ RECOVER command you will force the client who is using your nickname registered on your account to change
the nickname. The User mode +R allows you to block everyone who is not authed to his USERNAME. So, if you set it you won't see
private messages from not authed clients. If you are in a network, and if you need to connect more than 4 clients per IP
feel free to contact one of the Network Administrators, or email routing at beirut.com with your request. If we think it's
ok and valid, we will allow you to connect more than 5 clients from one IP. Email us ONLY if there are many people on the same
IP in your network. Do NOT mail us if you want to play with your bots. It's a big NO.If your channel gets flooded by drones,
OS will join and set modes +mr which will prevent the drones/bots to message and join/part your channel, because they are not
logged in. By doing /lusers in your status window you can see how many users are connected on the network at the moment and what
was the maximum number of users connected on the Beirut IRC Network. The Beirut IRC Network cares about it's users! Have fun ;)
That would be everything you will see on this page regarding the new Beirut IRCu features in few words. If you are interested
and want to know how the modes work, how the features are implemented then go ahead and read the source, it is an open source.
I hope this document was useful to you. For any mistakes, typos, bad grammar, feel free to contact us immediately.
Actually, please do it :)
Above everything, have fun on the Beirut IRC Network. if you have any suggestion mail us at email@example.com .
