If it says Hallway++ on somebody's badge or on a sign at a table, they're in.

People doing Hallway++ would prefer your default to be "come and say hello" so they don't miss out on interesting conversations. Having to say if it isn't convenient right now is a conciously chosen trade-off.

Lurking is fine; it's ok to listen to the conversation and then introduce yourself when there's a lull.

Or, fundamentally:

Hallway++ means you're never interrupting.

People intending to participate may or may not have added themselves to HWPPPeople

If you're trying to find people, the mailing list is good, as are #yapc and #hallway++ on irc.perl.org
