The additions made to BOINC for I2U2 were primarily in the social interaction software, not the distributed computation software. The forums were modified to add privacy, to add attachments to postings, to give users limited but rechargable ratings points, and to add keyword classification of postings. An extension for MediaWiki was also developed which allows a wiki to be attached seamlessly to a BOINC project, using the user database of the BOINC project instead of a separate user database for the wiki. (See Extension:BOINC Authentication for details, and see the glossary on the Pirates@Home site for an example.)
The project has also been used to try out modifications to BOINC that have nothing to do with I2U2, many of which are listed in the project wiki. There are also pages in the wiki classified as BOINC Hacks which show project administrators and application developers how they can have more refined control over their projects. For example, there is a very complete list of all the ways to implement scheduler restrictions.
