Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A few of us in the C# chat room came up with an idea for an open source project that we're going to work on. Since the idea was sparked in chat, it seems fitting that we collaborate in chat.

The faq for chat says

discussion should more or less revolve around the same topics you'd find at Stack Overflow

I think this is kind of a grey area. People don't collaborate on projects in Stack Overflow, but chat is a different beast.

I want to move the conversation to its own room, but I want to make sure this use of the chat site is okay first.

Trust me, it's a lot better than what chat is normally used for here. Have at it. – casperOne Oct 3 '12 at 2:42

Open Source programming? Sounds fairly on-topic to me.
