Chwido is the IRC bot.
First identify to the bot:
chat in private with Chwido and send
identify <username> <password>
Test if you're correctly recognized
#startmeeting Starts a meeting. The calling nick becomes the chair. If any text is given on the rest of the line, this becomes the meeting topic.
#endmeeting (Chairs only.) End a meeting, save logs, restore previous topic, give links to logs. You know the drill.
#topic (Chairs only.) Set the current topic of discussion. MeetBot changes the topic in the channel (saving the original topic to be restored at the end of the meeting).
#meetingtopic (Chairs only.) Sets the "meeting topic". This will always appear in the topic in the channel, even as the #topic changes. The format of the IRCtopic is "<topic> (Meeting Topic: <meeting topic>)"
#agreed (alias #agree) (Chairs only.) Mark something as agreed on. The rest of the line is the details.
#chair and #unchair (Chairs only.) Add new chairs to the meeting. The rest of the line is a list of nicks, separated by commas and/or spaces. The nick which started the meeting is the owner and can't be de-chaired. The command replies with a list of the current chairs, for verification (Chairs only.) Example: < John> #chair Jack Jane < KirinOS> Current chairs are: MsAlizarin MrBeige MrGreen
#action (anyone) Add an ACTION item to the minutes. Provide irc nicks of people involved, and will be both a complete listing of action items, and a listing of action items sorted by nick at the end of the meeting. This is very useful for making sure this gets done. Example: < John> #action Jack will make the docment page If Jack has said something during the meeting, this will be automatically assigned to him.
#info (anyone) Add an INFO item to the minutes. Example: < John> #info We need to have a guru in perl for next release.
#idea (anyone) Add an IDEA to the minutes.
#undo undo the last command
#save This save temporary log (which will be saved only after #endmeeting if no #save command is sent beofre) Could be usefull as we still not have meetbot on a stable server, but it's on my computer, so a internet connection down may lead to a log lost :( (Raph)
Chwido can understand some special commands dependind on the installed plugins:
chwido help (help [<plugin>] [<command>]) This command gives a useful description of what <command> does. <plugin> is only necessary if the command is in more than one plugin.
chwido help list (list [--private] [<plugin>]) Lists the commands available in the given plugin. If no plugin is given, lists the public plugins available. If --private is given, lists the private plugins.
chwido list meetbot addchair, deletemeeting, listmeetings, pingall, recent, and savemeetings
chwido help addchair (addchair <channel> <network> <nick>) -- Add a nick as a chair to the meeting.
chwido help listmeetings List all meetings.
chwido help savemeetings Saves all active meetings on all channels and all networks.
chwido help addchair <channel> <network> <nick> Forcibly adds this nick as a chair on the giver channel on the given network, if a meeting is active there.
chwido help deletemeeting <channel> <network> <saveit=True> Delete a meeting from the cache. If save is given, save the meeting first. The default value of save is True. This is useful for when MeetBot becomes broken and is unable to properly save a meeting, rendering the #endmeeting command non-functional.
chwido help recent Display the last ten or so started meetings, along with their channels. This is useful if you are the bot admin and want to see just who all is using your bot, for example to better communicate with those channels.
chwido help pingall (pingall <text>) Send a broadcast ping to all users on the channel. A message to be sent along with this ping must also be supplied for this command to work.
chwido list admin capability add, capability remove, channels, ignore add, ignore list, ignore remove, join, nick, and part
Adding a chair when the last chair of the meeting is gone
Open a private chat with chwido, then (see the supybot page in the bbw for credentials), or ask for your own chwido admin credentials:
user identify <admin_name> <admin_pwd>
Then (for example)
meetbot addchair #openmandriva-cooker freenode username
