>1) Does evolt have an IRC channel? If so:

+1 option A if and only if there are sufficient willing ops and if 
all standards are written, agreed upon, and clearly published for ops 
and everyone else to reference as needed.  And the ops' names should 
also be published.

otherwise, abstain.

+1 with this caveat: all policies regarding evolt IRC and standards 
of behavior (& bots)  must be clearly published in a central location 
along with other official evolt stuff.

(& if necessary, links to more general IRC FAQ stuff as well...)
