After being convinced to chair a meeting for #ubuntu-uk on irc, I decided that the process of compiling the minutes of the meeting takes too much time. My idea to make the minute-making process quicker was Mootbot - a bot that sits in the channel and records specific events, outputting it in a user-friendly format.
Mootbot is currently being developed using the eggdrop framework.
Sample output of the bot can be found here when I get round to uploading it.
The code listing will be made available here.
