"The foundation" isn't doing anything in particular related to IRC.
The OpenDev Collaboratory on the other hand runs an IRC bot which
channels can opt into for long-term logging of discussions. Those
logs are published here:

Some, like #openstack-dev, have (quite literally) a decade of
historical channel logs. I see it as an important archival record of
the project's open development and design, almost all the way back
to its very origins.
