Software Archaeology: GNUe IRC data & summaries

Back in the 2000's, the GNU Enterprise (GNUe) project chat logs (and human-created chat log summaries!) were used by several papers in the area of text summarization, especially dialogue summarization.

The reason the GNUe chat logs and summaries were used is that the logs were accompanied by summaries that were compiled periodically (manually) by a human. The summarized chat logs can thus be considered a kind of "gold standard" for what kind of summary a machine summarizer should produce.
