Having Trouble Joining IRC Channel?

IRC Channel Key Enabled Due to Spambots ...

Due to the current spambot attack on freenode, we have had to make some changes to the IRC channel configuration:
https://freenode.net/news/spambot-attack

This is now set as +s (secret) which prevents #scummvm being listed in channel list, and +k (key) has been set which adds a channel key (password) for joining.

The key is currently set to "scummvm". This may be changed if the bots start getting past this, but see the website or wiki for the latest key.
