From Wikipeida 
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet text messaging (chat) or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message.
You can use a webchat client from your browser. Freenode had a nice webchat client on webchat.freenode.net .
You can also use a program like XChat .
We have a management trac to help keep tickets of management tasks hosed on fedorahosted.org .
