[Noisebridge-board] Registering #noisebridge as an official channel

Well board members, what say you? I'm happy to help draft a letter and
even put forth some $$ in order to get this done. Though I do imagine
the people chosen as the channel owners may be a consensus item for a
near future meeting. It's clear we need to do something about this and
now is as good as time as ever.

Yes.  The NB board should write an official letter to the Freenode
board, in which they:
a) identify themselves
b) identify 3 individuals to be channel owners
c) explain the current #noisebridge channel situation and Jake's absence
d) request that the #noisebridge channel be assigned to these 3 people
and registered as an official channel

Given that Freenode is an overworked non-profit, I would also suggest
that we make a small donation (like $40 or $50) towards its maintenance
since we'll be using *their* time.

Also, note that the matter will probably wait until the next Freenode
monthly board meeting to resolve.  There's been too many issues over
channel hijacking for them to risk rushing a resolution.
