Phinx Desktop Repo and IRC channel

Phinx Desktop Repo:

Last week Kori set up repositories for both x86 and x86_64. The repo's have been tested by him and both work well. They are empty at the moment but will be filled in the nearby future with packages and it will allow him to create the tweaks and features in Phinx without having to break any compatibilities with the main PCLOS repository.

Source of the news can be found on the Phinx Desktop site itself:

 Phinx Desktop IRC Channel:

Another step forward and slight change is that we decided to set up a Phinx Desktop IRC channel where the Phinx users can ask for help and not to overload the PCLinuxOS-Support channel with questions related specific to Phinx Desktop.

If you're looking for us.... we can be found on Freenode IRC in the #PhinxDesktop channel. If you have a IRC client like Xchat for example you can join the channel i mentioned above. Another option is by logging in with a web based client that is to be found on the Phinx Desktop site itself in a sidebar.
