It turns out this was a very popular option, so we've gone ahead and performed this for all channels registered with accessbot. If you're in a channel that still needs this, please add it to the accessbot channel list and let us know in #openstack-infra. Also, if folks would be willing to lurk in #openstack-unregistered to help anyone who ends up there by surprise and is unfamiliar with how to register with nickserv, that would be great. -Jim  https://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack-infra/project-config/tree/accessbot/channels.yaml __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
