This project is dedicated to the memory of Iain "Spoon" Truskett.


Dave Rolsky and Chris Dent have made major contributions to this code base. Of particular note, Dave removed the memory cycles from the hub architecture, allowing safe use with mod_perl.

(Dave, Chris and myself currently work at Socialtext, where this framework is heavily used.)
