It cannot be made official because the resources on which #debian-devel exists are not the property of Debian nor under the control of Debian. If you insist on having #debian-devel be an Official Debian IRC Channel, then I suggest you modify your GR to state: "I propose that Debian dissociate itself from OpenProjects IRC Network and that Debian establish its own IRC network on its own hardware. This new IRC network will be called irc.debian.org and have no association with irc.openprojects.net." Until that happens, the #debian-devel is a channel on OPN and will live by OPN's policies, which, in effect, say that #debian-devel is allocated to Wichert Akkerman. I think your options are as follows: (1) change your GR as I suggest above, or (2) petition Wichert Akkerman to change the founder to the DPL *and* convince the DPL that these policies should be instituted *and* ensure that the DPL understands that the channel belongs to the DPL not to himself personally, or (3) petition lilo to take #debian-devel away from Wichert Akkerman. Option (3) is highly unlikely. Option (1) is unlikely to meet with the approval of those organizations that sponsor the colocation of our hardware. Option (2) is the most likely. Until you hear from Wichert Akkerman, your GR is moot. A Debian GR has no authority over Wichert Akkerman's use and or abuse of #debian-devel on OPN, since OPN is not a Debian resource.
