I would not recommend using a public IRC network for the reasons discussed in http://about.psyc.eu/IRC. The reasoning also applies to XMPP chatrooms as all of its traffic goes through federation, so XMPP is usually even worse.

I don't think XMPP chats are practical for various reasons which I elaborated here:

@IronSoldier my comment was vague and I don't want to digress from the thread topic.

Its been mentioned in security circles that the XMPP library libpurple which Pidgin and other opensource IM programs are based is full of 0days - many remotely exploitable.

Our best bet is gajim or Adam Langley's xmpp-client once a gui is written for it (written in type safe languages)

I would recommend pidgin. It offer OTR (Off-The-Record) pluggin, is multi-protocol (XMPP, IRC, ICQ...) and Tails used a hardened version restricting protocol to IRC and XMPP only.

If you go down the XMPP path please install anything but libpurple.

Sorry for the delay... Even after having changed my email, Phabricator still sends email to my old one that I review about once a month....

Other option would be to run our own IRC server with strict rules (Access to only Whonix channel, mandatory registration (match with forum registration database ?)

It would requests some server ressources and a bit of time but it can be done...

Next time it does not work, can you please bring this up on tor-talk about #Tor? @HulaHoop

OFTC actually allows Tor connections via any IRC client. Actual limitation is that you can't connect by the webchat.

Ideally the new network would also offer an additional webchat (web gateway to it's irc network) as OFTC offered.
