Whiteboard

https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu-bots/+spec/community-m-ubuntu-bots-plans
Supybots
 * Ubottu
 * Ubottu clones

Eggdrop
 * Mootbot

Other
 * Various irssi bots
 * Floodbots are php

Ideally, we should reduce duplication. In a year's time we should be down to one
bot handling most functions except specialized things.

Supybot has no i18n support. rbot does. However supybot plugins can be localized.

= Action Items =
 * [tsimpson, gord, m4v] Investigate storm python DBAL to switch Encyclopedia plugin
   from SQLite
 * [AlanBell] Talk to Rick Spencer to investigate creating a quickly template to
   deply a bot development environment
 * [jtatum] Getting started developing wikidoc
 * [AlanBell] Get started rewriting mootbot
 * [joey] The webcal plugin needs a rewrite
 * https://code.edge.launchpad.net/~bnrubin/+junk/GoogleCal
