There were some changes from its original incarnation, but everything turned out pretty well for a bot written from scratch in approximately 6 days by a Perl fanatic with no knowledge of object-oriented Perl — I actually learned some object-oriented Perl while at this and I feel like I can do anything with it now.
I was in a hurry to get this done right before freenode deployed ircd-seven today (yays!), for no particular reason; this resulted in a security feature not working with hyperion-ircd until I introduced a quickie hack that I'll be retiring later today.
We are using a private git repository for managing the source code, but since I wrote it with an open-source licensing model in mind as usual, here's umcreg version 0.1.1 for the curious, released under the terms of the GNU GPL version 3.

I have already registered our current members using some basic, known information about them — even including their join date. Old projects' registration will be a little slow as I need to research the current structure of the repository, of which I lost track a year ago, and retrieve original timestamps. The registry's web interface, provided by the
Thoria::Web packages, can be found here.
umcreg is already working at the project's admin channel on freenode too. It only obeys the project staff's orders, though, so there's no point in trying to send messages to it.
The next step in implementing the Registry model is writing the Statistics service, codenamed “Listra”, and most likely going to be named umcstat. That will definitively take much longer than umcreg's development. Meanwhile, Espreon is trying to convince me to take care of umcdist (codename “Blackmore”) first.
