Over on the irc server irc.stratics.com, there is currently a chat with the developers of Jumpgate in progress. You may recall Jumpgate as the open beta massively multiplayer space sim with striking similarities to Privateer. We also reported some months back that when Origin was working on Privateer Online they were possibly interested in licensing the game to form a part of the actual POL. Anyhow, the party's on irc.stratics.com in #JGHOC right now. Sorry for the lack of advance notice. If there's anything interesting, we'll come up with a log later. For more on irc and our permanent DALnet home, check out our #Wingnut section. On a slightly related note, you can find the website of The Drakhai here. They're a clan of Wing Commander vets who are currently in the beta.
