porygit was originally two distinct bots, one called loggly and a second whose name was gitly. One stored chat logs for developers to look at (a simple ad hoc persintence method for IRC), and gitly would post updates to an IRC channel about commits to some git repository. These two bots merged to become porygit. Later, porygit gained the ability to post to certain forums with git updates as well as the traditional IRC messaging.

Eventually, porygit had same and kalte merged into him through the multi-binary feature of jitro.
