I noticed that #telescience is not a registered channel. I'm not sure
of the history of using this channel for SAC, however the fact that
it is unregistered means there is no channel op and therefore anybody
can join and wreak havoc. There has already been one instance of
defacing the channel topic. With a registered channel we could lock
it down should the need arise, including controlling who has voice
and kicking trouble makers.
To register a channel it has to be empty except for one user. I have
registered #osgeo-sac in the event the committee wants to migrate to
it. Otherwise, I would suggest getting everybody off #telescience and
registering it to prevent problems in the future. It can be
difficult to get everybody off a channel when you don't have ops,
because you can't kick anybody, nor can you prevent people from
joining while you are trying to clear it.
SAC communications are important and having an unregistered and
uncontrollable channel is a risk.
