Google's "Slack" Project;fp;16;fpid;0

Code developed to help Google keep its legion of servers in sync has been released as an open source project called "Slack." Using rsync from a central "Slackmaster" server, code is pushed or pulled as needed.

What the heck? I have no vested interests in either entity, but the naming seems a little too close for comfort.

What does everyone else think?
