Ralfchat needs Project Manager / Developer

Due to limited time and resources I am currently looking for a motivated and avid project manager or developer for my longtime web chat project. This is one of the most popular and robust chat scripts available, written in Perl. Please contact me if you are willing to support the development, assist in or take over project management and maintenance.
