Logging of Ubuntu LoCo Teams core channels

I would have to agree with the overall intent of the logging. I can also
appreciate that there are those who do not like that being an always-on
'forced' thing.

In the end my only concern would be that it could drive some folks to
non-official channels which would dilute the main purpose of the channel
-- to be a gathering place for all those interested in the team.

I myself do not care and I will wait to hear what others have to say
before tossing a chip in to the vote box.
