i am a LinuxMint-user in Germany - as you might know Neo67 built up a German Forum and also an IRC-chat.
Kanotix and Sidux using Infobash for to get a overview in a irc-session with users (with problems) to a pc by infobash.
So you might get Infobash into LinuxMint out of the Box????
Also fine a IRC-channel of LinuxMint for International-users on your fine Homepage? or link to : http://www.linuxmintusers.de/index.php?ind=chat (pump live into the channel!
(so infobash will make more sense)
