Retrieves the number of people who are online in an IRC Channel, which can be displayed in the sidebar using a widget.
Well WP-IRC Plugin (for lack of a better name ;) ) can fetch the number of users online in any IRC channel and can be scheduled to auto refresh it every x.minutes. The count thus fetched can be displayed in the sidebar of your blog using a sidebar widget provided by the Plugin.
More details about the Plugin can be found at the Plugins Home page.
The pot file is available with the Plugin. If you are willing to do translation for the Plugin, use the pot file to create the .po files for your language and let me know. I will add it to the Plugin after giving credit to you.
If you are not familiar with either git or Github then refer to this guide to see how fork and send pull request.
