No rush sir. Take a look at the current issues when you get a chance. Read over the docs and what the tool does, then look at the current tests to get an idea of how it kinda works.

this isn’t public
is it?
yeah it is
good call

loooool
i mean, i will say that in a single day i set up continuous integration, got my project to 100% test coverage, integrated it with gitter, got it ready for heroku, and we can’t do fucking anything in a single day at #{company.current}

that's true, but i'm gonna guess that you're the product owner of st, and responsible for the roadmap and everything like that
and you don't have to ask 20 people every time you change an interface in the API ;)
which turns into a bikeshed
but everyone forgets that the color of the shed is irrelevant if it's burning to the ground

bummer
i wish all these chat systems supported XMPP, then i wouldn't have to have hipchat, slack, discord, and irc clients all open

discord does appear to be pretty slick
hipchat is still a piece of shit though
