The Allegro Wiki is migrating to github at https://github.com/liballeg/allegro_wiki/wiki
The Allegro IRC community consists of 3 IRC channels on the freenode IRC network. #allegro, the primary channel, is where all members congregate to discuss both Allegro related and non-Allegro related topics. #allegro-support, the support channel, is dedicated solely to Allegro issues with no off-topic discussion. #allegro-development, the development channel, is where the Allegro Hack Days are held.

The History of #allegro
Allegro was created around 1995; see here.
The #allegro channel on EFNet was probably founded around 1998/99. It is said that even Shawn Hargreaves was there once in the first days.
The most famous regular is probably game programming legend Matthew Smith.
Here a quote from dwi:
<dwi> i'm thinkint was early 99 we started using #allegro, mainly for private discussions we didn't want in #djgpp
Allegro version is 3.12
Regulars include gfoot, X-Viila, ChadC (dwi), networm.
Controling channel bots: canis?
Allegro version is 4.0.x
All the people from allegro.cc drop into #allegro.
In April of this year, Shawn Hargreaves makes his second visit to #allegro.
The channel is watched over by Allegro, Paranoima's bot; Rashnu, Ceniza's bot; and BullMoose, Tomasu's bot. In April, Ceniza is replaced by BAF and Rashnu by BAF's bot, Redundant.
Allegro is now a registered freenode group (so who wants can get allegro.user hostmasks)
The channel #allegro-support was created for users who feel that there is too much off-topic chatter going on in #allegro. Additionally, #allegro-unregistered was created as a spill-over channel for unregistered users when #allegro is under attack by a spammer.
Since January 2007 a CIA bot reports directly any changes to the Allegro code.
