Ehm... the Transmission team does not run the FreeNode IRC network, nor do they have anything to do with it's administration, they just use (or used) a channel on there.

I just tried it and I could get onto the FreeNode servers, and join the #transmission channel.

But they do list the irc server as used for development discussions. It was unavailable last time I checked too or I wouldn't have posted though it looks like it is likely an issue with the system I'm trying to use to connect (which is odd as it usually runs completely open).

Edit: Looks like possibly freenode is blocking the system. Sorry for the bother.

Freenode and the channel are definitely working. Currently just over 100 users.

Yeah, I can telnet to the port from my home computer but not from the one where the irc client is. The client is on a public server so it's possible it has been blacklisted by freenode due to abuse. There is, however, a web interface to freenode which works fine :)
