How to setup MeetBot

MeetBot is designed to assist in running meetings, taking notes, and so on. It is in pure python, as a plugin to supybot.
However, there is a clear distinction between meeting-code and IRC-code, so it should be relatively easy to port to other bots. It is under the supybot license (3-clause BSD).

MeetBot is designed to be simple, not complex. Features are great, but not so much that it becomes hard to use or unwieldy to maintain.

How to install and setup Supybot

Supybot, is an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) bot written in Python
This bot is just fantastic. It does everything you need from a IRC bot, and it’s very easy to use.
The bot would have to be able to take care of auto-opping and similar “traditional” channel duties and has factoid functionality similar to blootbot/infobot
So pretty much you can say that supybot is an all in one IRC bot.
