Realtime project tracking system

CIA is a “version control informant” that relays commit notifications to IRC channels.

The service running the CIA codebase is down since 2011, and the project no longer maintained.

It provided real-time VCS commit notifications on various IRC networks. There were CIA hooks for subversion, git, bzr, etc, so a project just had to install such a hook into their repository and register on the CIA website.
