Hybrid IRCD has been a favorite of mine for many years. I tried it once because a Croatian IRC network ran it and it stuck with me. I'm very happy to announce Hybrid packages for Arch Linux are available in AUR from today. I worked on it as a side project for a while and finished today thanks to the blizzard that kept me inside this weekend. Hybrid server is available as ircd-hybrid, and Hybserv2 services are available as ircd-hybrid-serv. They adhere to standards set by all other ircd providers, default configuration for both is usable out of the box, and examples for connecting services to the server are included. They were built and tested on both arches, only component not tested by me are systemd service files.
