Our IRC bot has been merged with the updater that keeps this site up to date and has been renamed to "Steam Database Backend" which can be found on GitHub. As part of this merging process, most of the code has been rewritten to fix some bugs, improve readability and performance.
As always, you can join us on IRC where we discuss the latest news in the Steam universe. Updates to important applications are also broadcasted automatically by the backend application. Our #steamdb channel resides on the Freenode network.
