It's the same actual bot instance that's also logging your channel
conversations (if you have channel logging to
eavesdrop.openstack.org), the only difference is that in meeting
channels we grant it the mode necessary to be able to change channel
topics. It will even work without that, you just don't get your
channel topic updated automagically during meetings. We can also
fairly easily control that access on a per-channel basis (we have a
separate accessbot which sets channel permissions for us so it's
just a matter of making a very small change to a data file in a Git

It likely will soon regardless because Freenode doesn't let any user
join >120 channels at a time so we'll almost certainly need to shard
channels across multiple meetbot instances soon anyway. There's a
thread starting on the infra ML about hacking on meetbot in concert
with devs from the Fedora community too, which you might want to
jump in on:
