Currently the #fedora channel on freenode requires some kind of
registration. In my opinion it is pretty difficult to register on
freenode (I have tried but haven't managed). Do you think it would be
possible to drop the registration requirement? It is a pretty big
barrier to newbies and people like me who can't find IRC help easily.
I know there are a lot of bots and spam, but maybe it would be
possible to try and see if it really gets bad?
