The people

This page is intended for new community members to know who to “go to” for specific issues, as well as highlight the great work of our contributors. You might have noticed that some of us are connected at all times (using an IRC proxy such as bip). Being connected does not necessarily mean we are in front of the computer: if we have an Away status, you need to be patient when asking questions as we might be temporarily offline or on different timezones. We'll see your messages when we reconnect using our IRC client.
