MontyPyBot aims to be a Python chat bot. Currently Monty is close to death, in fact suffered from bit-rot for nearly 6 years. In the Spring of 2006, ve became again of mild interest to vir maintainer.

"I have given thought to migrating Monty to the SILC protocol. The old code was not worth porting so I started all over from scratch. Please take a look at the resources below for a more mature and functional Python IRC implementation," says current MontyPyBot maintainer Charles Stevenson.
Other cool Python IRC resources:
- Benzo - benzo is a pseudo-ai bot that uses a Markov chain to generate funny text. benzo is written in python. [no longer maintained]
NOTE: benzo is not functional. I've sucessfully implemented madbot (python-irclib + madlib) which does what benzo's author intended.
- Pybot - pybot is a full featured IRC bot written in Python. It was originally developed to integrate many sources of information into IRC channels inside Conectiva, and has evolved into a full featured bot.
- Python IRC client library - This library (also known as python-irclib) is intended to encapsulate the IRC protocol at a quite low level. It provides an event-driven IRC client framework. It has a fairly thorough support for the basic IRC protocol, CTCP and DCC connections. [This is a fine library for all Python IRC bot uses.]
- Supybot - Supybot is a cross-platform IRC bot written in Python, known to run anywhere Python runs, which includes all *nices, and Windows.
- RFC 1459 - Internet Relay Chat Protocol
- RFC 2810 - Internet Relay Chat: Architecture
- RFC 2811 - Internet Relay Chat: Channel Management
- RFC 2812 - Internet Relay Chat: Client Protocol
- RFC 2813 - Internet Relay Chat: Server Protocol
- RFC 2234 - Augmented BNF for Syntax Specifications: ABNF
Other cool Python bot resources:
- Jabbot - jabbot is a jabber bot written in python with a custom jabber library. [no longer maintained]
- Madlib - a toy to analyze and generate text using Markov chains
