There are a bunch of links and mentions of irc://irc.freenode.net in the Django documentation. Many people don't have an IRC client set up so sending them to irc:// protocol links isn't so much use. Also the official endpoint to connect to is chat.freenode.net these days - irc.freenode.net is a CNAME to it.

I think if we updated the documentation to point to the freenode "chat" page it would be the most use: https://freenode.net/kb/answer/chat . This includes a link to the webchat interface as well as configuration instructions for connecting with an IRC client.

I checked and in the documentation there are references to irc://irc.freenode.net/django and irc://irc.freenode.net/django-dev . Should all of them be replaced by ​https://freenode.net/kb/answer/chat specifying the name of the chat in the text itself and not into the link?

Thanks for picking this up. Specifying the name in the link sounds good to me.
