A quick survey we ran before we enabled this showed that a large percentage (90/120, IIRC) of people in #haiku already authenticate by default. There are a large number of people in #haiku who never talk, so we thought that adding this flag would only serve to inconvenience people while they set up NickServ / added their password into Vision's settings / etc. ...

revoking commit access if one breaks the build and doesn't fix the problem in, let's say, 3 hours. What would be the point of such policy though? I mean, aside from trying to reduce number of contributors to 0. Do we really want to say now that each decision one makes must be discussed with the other members of the project otherwise if there are objections someone would propose revoking some of your powers? Sure, ...

Hello, gave all that power. Abuse of power -- please let's not blow things out of proportion. The Haiku project is organized as a meritocracy. People who contribute gain trust and privileges. They are supposed to (and do) use these privileges ...

He's one of the most active people on IRC and having him as op makes sense. Removing him from op won't show us if he's learned from this incident. ...

So, I suggest waddlesplash's permissions for changing access modes on the IRC channels are revoked. -- Adrien. after having consulted this mailing list first, and only after getting the OK, which I would have voted down. The #haiku channel is and always was meant to be open. ...

[haiku-development] [proposal] removing waddlesplash from #haiku IRC channel operators (Adrien Destugues)

Fri, 2015-07-24 13:45
Hi, Recently waddlesplash decided to make the #haiku IRC channel require authentication with nickserv, apparently as an attempt to reduce trolling in there. The channel is known to largely derive into offtopic discussions. It is also the main landing point for people looking for support, as we bundle Vision preconfigured to join it in every Haiku install. It is an easy way to reach the Haiku community and get in touch with the developers. ...

Just register with the nickserver as they said and then you need to identify with the nickserver with /msg NickServ IDENTIFY account password trolls and spam etc is a real issue on the irc networks just like it is everywhere and stuff like this cuts down on it On Wed, Jul 8, 2015 at 5:39 AM, Jim Saxton black.belt.jimmy@xxxxxxxxx wrote: ...
