I didn't get that.
Who are "we"? (Arpi, al3x, gabucino)
If the new channel is for your hungarian friends, what have
it to do with mplayer and this maillist?
If the new channel is for hidden development, what's the
difference with mplayer-dev then? I should remind you that
there is #mplayer user channel in freenode that is quite popular.

Irc logs are send in yet another maillist mplayer-devel
(not mplayer-dev?) Why not mplayer-irclog?

Anyway as you are finnaly moving, could I suggest the developer
channel to be moved to freenode?
The user channel #mplayer is quite big, poplular and have regular
The IrcNet have very mean policy and I usually have troubles connecting
to it. Regular splits, overloaded servers, and limiting connections to
same domain.
