Given our long period of stable CCG infrastructure, I thought it's high time
to go ahead and ruin it by adding new features. :P

New CCG infrastructure features:

* Auto-presence - No one is required to present+
  themselves any more. The cgbot does it for us now,
  saving our feeble sausage fingers from being
  over exerted.

* The Ryan Grant, Who We All Know And Love, Would Like To
  Know Where The Raw Transcripts Are Feature - When
  the cgbot closes out the meeting, it will
  let everyone in IRC know where the raw transcripts,
  audio, and video files are so anyone can download them
  and/or remix them to spread CCG propaganda. This will
  hopefully also save Heather from having to document
  yet another piece of tribal CCG knowledge.

* The You Exist Even Though You're Not in people.json
  Feature - When someone is present+'d, which is
  anyone that joins the call now thanks to auto-presence,
  that person will show up in the attendees list.
  This achieves two things 1) the poor minutes publisher
  can update the people.json at their leisure instead of
  being blocked by it whenever a new person shows up
  to a call, and 2) we get a more accurate record of
  attendees.

* The Fellow Jitser Invisibility Decloaker Feature -
  If you join the meeting with a new browser, or
  in Incognito mode, and you change your name from
  "Fellow Jister" to your preferred name, you
  never show up in the attendee list. People that
  change their names now show up in the attendee
  list. If you want to stay pseudonymous just give
  yourself an unrecognizable name...
  like "Robot Overlord".

I have taken these features through their paces as much as I can. They were
tested last week on the VC HTTP API. There may still be bugs, and if there
are, we'll deal with
them as they happen.

These are baby steps towards an attempt at auto-transcription and
auto-publication of minutes. There are a few things that aren't automated yet
(like auto-detecting the meeting name)... ETA on those upgrades is unknown
since all these upgrades are on a best effort basis.

Just letting everyone know that we're making progress.
