The board could do this.  Should we?  I won't agree to it unless we have
a general membership consensus in favor of it; the most difficult bit, I
think, is to decide who the new channel owners should be.  Let's take
that in two parts.


1. should the board request this from Freenode?

2. let's wait on *who* until we know if there's consensus on *whether*.

If you don't care about IRC, feel free to suppress this thread entirely.
