Codebot is an IRC bot that receives GitHub webhooks and forwards them to IRC channels. It is designed to send messages in a format identical to that of the official GitHub IRC Service. Codebot is able to stay connected after sending messages. This eliminates the delays and visual clutter caused by reconnecting each time a new message needs to be delivered.

In addition, Codebot is able to handle all events not supported by the official service. Messages for these events are designed to be as consistent as possible with official messages. If these additional notifications are not desired, they can be disabled through the webhook settings.
