To quote the project ideas list:

While I wouldn't entirely rule out accepting a proposal which also added
support for something new (e.g. another learning algorithm), that would
really need to be a secondary phase, to be done once the module has been
brought to a releasable state, if time allows.

I don't think many of us have fixed "IRC hours".  The best thing to do
is ask a question in the channel, and wait for a response.
