GOZERBOT is a channel bot that aids conversation in IRC channels and Jabber conference rooms. It's mainly used to serve RSS feeds and to have custom commands made for the channel. More then just a channel bot, GOZERBOT aims to provide a platform for the user to program his own bot and make it into something useful. This is done with a plugin structure that makes it easy to program your own. There are over 100 plugins already written and ready for use.
Saros is a Eclipse plugin for collaborative text editing that in particular targets distributed pair programming (also called remote pair programming), but can support arbitrarily many participants at once. All members of a session have an identical copy of an Eclipse project and Saros keeps these copies in sync as editing progresses.
