[openstack-dev] The #openstack-packaging channel requires an invite?

Someone showed up in the -stable channel this morning asking for help 
with packaging. I gather they were there because the IRC wiki [1] says 
the #openstack-stable channel is also for packaging discussions, given 
-stable originated from distro people.

I redirected them to https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Packaging which 
points to https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/PackagerResources which says:

"The #openstack-packaging channel on Freenode is available for packaging 
collaboration and discussion."


However, you have to apparently be invited to join the elite 
#openstack-packaging channel.

What gives? Is that channel dead? Is there something else? Is there a 
secret handshake I can learn to palms to grease to get in?
