Extend the chat & presence features of NB 6.7 (project chat rooms, who is online) to allow 1:1 chat and more presence of project members in the IDE. Make it easy to see and contact other people in the team. Offer list of team members when a person needs to be chosen (e.g. when assigning an issue).

The 1:1 chat would work in addition to the project-wide chat to allow private communication. The IDE would make it easy to contact other people in various context. Wherever a user name appears in the IDE (issue reports, commit logs, chat rooms), it indicates if the user is online, and can be clicked to start a chat with. The user should be able to see presence status and send messages to any other Kenai user, with some necessary limitations to prevent spamming and keep privacy.
