[openstack-dev] [Glance] IRC logging

Based on the feedback received, we would like to avoid logging on the project channel. My take from the discussion was that it gives many a folks a feeling of informal platform to express their ideas freely in contrast to the meeting channels.

However, at the same time I would like to point out that using foul language in the open freenode channels is a bad practice. There are no admins monitoring our project channels however, those channels that are monitored have people kicked out on misbehavior.  The point being, "no logging" means freedom of thought for only the creative purposes; please do not take me any other way.

Hi Cindy:

You might want to consider offering a patch (you can use this one as an
example: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/138965/2) and anyone with a
strong perspective can express themselves with a vote and comment.
