Based on the feedback received, we would like to avoid logging on the project 
channel. My take from the discussion was that it gives many a folks a feeling 
of informal platform to express their ideas freely in contrast to the meeting 

However, at the same time I would like to point out that using foul language in 
the open freenode channels is a bad practice. There are no admins monitoring 
our project channels however, those channels that are monitored have people 
kicked out on misbehavior.  The point being, "no logging" means freedom of 
thought for only the creative purposes; please do not take me any other way.

You might want to consider offering a patch (you can use this one as an
example: and anyone with a
