Jody Garnett (PSC member) here - I have been unable to attend the formal IRC meeting time do to a change in timezone. As such I am setting up an informal IRC chat time for the month of February for Q&A and hopefully to work through a range of fascinating topics, ideas and directions that have emerged for the GeoTools library.

I have an idea for this week already:
Here are some ideas to consider for the rest of the month (not each depends on hunting down a party I know is interested)
The idea is for some hands on community work; with a PSC that can review and commit patches if needed.
Happy Hacking and welcome to 2009.
