Not really a question. Requesting help for IRC channel.

Greetings all,

I frequent the IRC channel on irc.freenode.net at #opencv. The channel is pretty active and I encourage you to stop by if you have the time to ask/answer questions. HOWEVER, we've been dealing with a mildly annoying issue for the past several months. The channel owner, vIkSiT, has been absent for over a year (with the exception of a few months ago, but his appearance was prompted from an email from myself. subsequent emails haven't been answered). I've attempted contacting freenode staff, but as per their policy, they won't transfer op rights to someone, unless that person is directly affiliated with OpenCV. Is there anyone here that is directly involved with OpenCV that could get op rights for #opencv and possibly then transfer it to someone more active in the channel? This would help the channel be more welcoming (we could update the welcome message, for starters), plus we'd then be able to moderate the channel more effectively. I've tried emailing some of the members that list their emails on code.opencv.org, but I have yet to receive a response from them, so as a last effort I'm trying here. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time.
