4 Hello fellow developers, users and community.
5
6 The topic of how to find a developer's IRC nick was brought up again on
7 #gentoo-dev today. Robin recalled that we already allow developers to
8 specify their IRC nick using the GentooIM field on our LDAP.
9 So at this point it would be possible to provide a public way to find
10 the nicks from developers. The question then, dear fellow developers, is
11 can we make this data public?
12 In a related issue, sometime ago I've found out the Gentoo Users[1]
13 site. One way to allow such sites to provide "confirmed" location of
14 developers would be for us to provide a public list of developers
15 locations. The question here is again can we make this data public? In
16 this case we already "publish" that information in Gentoo Developer's
17 Map[2].

22 Robin noticed that the current distribution of IRC nicks on our LDAP is
23 the following:
24
25 59 gentooIM: irc://irc.freenode.net
26 1 gentooIM: irc://irc.fu-berlin.de
27 1 gentooIM: irc://irc.gimp.org
28 1 gentooIM: irc://irc.gnome.org
29 1 gentooIM: irc://irc.mozilla.org
30 5 gentooIM: irc://irc.oftc.net
31 1 gentooIM: irc://irc.p2p-network.net
32 2 gentooIM: irc://irc.sorcery.net
33
34 So, about the GentooIM field, should we make all data in there public?
35 Only the data matching the "irc://" or "irc://irc.freenode.net/" prefix?
36 Do you fellow developers have any suggestions or requests about this?
37 What about the lat / lon fields?
38
39 Please let us know what you think so that we can determine if / how can
40 we make any of this information public.
