Source: git://git.ozlabs.org/~paulus/ppp.git
Homepage: http://ppp.samba.org/

How to find it yourself next time:

  • Find the package containing the command (on Debian and its derivatives e.g. dpkg -S /full/path/to/chat or apt-file search bin/chat)
  • If necessary find a more detailed description of the program (e.g. apt-cache show ppp)
  • Feed your favourite search engine with homepage [packagename | Description]

apt-file does not require the full path. bin/chat is perfectly fine if one does not know whether the binary is located in /usr/bin/, /sbin/, /usr/sbin/, etc. – Marco Dec 23 '12 at 19:00
