I tried to register #fdo but there are some problems.
The channel is empty, I'm the only user logged in but I still can't
register it getting warning:

[18:22]  -ChanServ- You are not a channel operator on [#fdo]

AFAIK, operator is a user who created the channel.

Who did create the #fdo channel?

I talked to the FreeNode staff and I was told that we can gain control
over channel after we file a group contact form (GCF)
and wait a few weeks for approval.

Here are useful links:

What are groups?

How to register new group?


I submitted the GCF form for moss4g project and I've been waiting ~4
weeks. I was told the FreeNode staff is pretty bussy with a lot of
applications to review.

Summarizing, if we know who created the #fdo channel, then that person
can close and re-create the #fdo channel, when it's empty.

Regardless having Op, it's highly recommended to file the GCF and
register FDO, MapGuide (and other projects) groups.

Looking forward your comments...
