I would be more than willing to assist in working on the "code of
conduct" with you. It has one thing that I would have liked to see from
day one.

I am willing to take shifts as both "Official Helper"  and/or OP as
needed.  I am in #fedora almost every night between 6pm and 11pm EST, so
it would not be much of an issue.

I think auditing would be great, as most of us who help and/or
participate currently as ops already do logging just so we see what the
hot-topics are, and to identify potential trouble makers in the channel.
Also most of the current ops communicate regularly which helps.

There are a few of those such as corwyn who is no longer involved in
fedora or fedora-unity/

I see this as important as once people determine there is a bot in the
channel tend to play with the bot to see what it can do.
