Subject: question about setting up build client

question about setting up build client

From: alex wallis <>
Date: Sat, 17 Jul 2010 23:25:07 +0100

Hi list.
I feel I am now ready to set my computer up to run as a build client for
rockbox as compilation seems to work fine for me, using this virtual machine
although I still haven't managed to shrink its virtual disc, I am still
trying to work out how exactly to do that.

 But anyway, I have one question I hope someone might be able to answer for
I believe I have set everything up correctly from a technical point of view.
However on the wiki page it says
"Set -username to your IRC nickname, so we know who runs the client."

I haven't ever used the rockbox irc channel and don't feel I am likely to do
so, I prefer to use the mailing lists and I am on both the ordinary users
list and the development list.

However I am quite happy to provide a name, I was thinking of just my name
as one word so alexwallis.

So this is my question, is there some procedure I need to follow to register
this as my official irc name? As I see all the big irc users have a page
where there irc names are listed along with there real ones.
As I say I doubt I will ever use irc, but obviously I guess someone needs to
know what my irc name would be in case I should ever need to use it.
Many thanks for your help.
