"Go away or I will replace you with a very small shell script"

Secretaribot is actually a few (quite small) python scripts, which, along with Noisebot, help out the Noisebridge collective with housekeeping tasks.

This document is automagically created by make.py and README.intro in the Secretaribot repository at github, which is written out to the Secretaribot's page on the Noisebridge wiki.
