The mailing list is also the place where developers should ask for help with Net::ICQ, and the best place to report bugs. Oh, and you'll probably enjoy the...

User-contributed code archive
In the near future, we'll be setting up an area where developers can share example code and helpful scripts for use with Net::ICQ. Looking for the Net::ICQ equivalent of 'Hello World?' You'll find that and more.
