Happy birthday WeeChat, 15 years!
On June 26th 2003, my search for a free IRC client with text interface, builtin nicklist and extensible with scripts was unsuccessful, so I (@flashcode) decided to write my own client from scratch. Starting point of a long and fun adventure!

The Python 3 porting party for WeeChat scripts started! There are 173 scripts to port to Python 3 (for now compatibility with Python 2.7 must be preserved). You can help us to reach the goal of 100% Python3-compatible scripts at the beginning of 2020!
