Logs of the developer meetings held every sunday: This list was mirrored on 5/25/05 from http://www.linuxcnc.org/EMC_news_history/IRC-logs/

Meetings are held on the emc IRC channel, usually on Sundays at noon Eastern time in the US (1700 GMT).

 The IRC server is irc.freenode.net, the channel is #emc 

Some weeks are missing, that means either nobody logged the conversation, or there was nothing of general interest, or simply that they haven't been posted yet. Logs are listed in reverse chronological order, newest at the top.
