conversational excerpts from irc

'I am curious about the networking set up at ps1. I am curious about software projects people have going at ps1. what is in active development? who would welcome new contributors? what are orphan projects that would be useful that someone could be encouraged to pick up. how does stuff work and how can I help maintain it'
