Pre-Boston dev party Sunday, Jan 9 at 3pm EST (20:00 UTC)

We're going to have another IRC dev party this Sunday in preparation
for our dev meeting in Boston:


The plan is to discuss preliminary details, agenda, and ideas for the
Boston dev meeting, and to generally include the larger community who
may or may not be able to join us in person in Boston on the 15th.
Most of the discussion will likely be around figuring out what Tor
will be doing for the next few years, but we can also discuss specific
development issues as well.

Standard party notes (stolen from Nick):

* This is called a "party" because calling our IRC meetings "parties"
has produced better outcomes in the past than calling them "meetings".
* If you're not free to make it, or if you're not free to make it for
the whole time, don't worry.  There will be more of these at other
times ranging from "too late in Europe" to "too early in California".
* If you're not an actual developer on Tor, you're welcome to come and
hang out, but this is mainly a time for developers to chat and plot
and generally confab.
* We're probably not going to be "partying" for every minute of all 2
hours; think of this as a salon where people wander in and out and
take breaks to go into a corner and eat cheese or debug trac or
* The format will probably change in the future as we get some
experience with it and learn more about what does (and doesn't) work
for us.  If having 2 open hours is too much, let's do less.
* I'm going to try to "host" this developer party.  Since you can't
serve food over IRC, and there's no need to vacuum the floor before
the party starts, I'm not quite sure what my responsibility will be
other than being around the whole time and trying to make sure the
conversation stays interesting.  I'll play it by ear.
