Hi all,

As you know, the floodbots check the users in the channels they are in
against open proxy blacklists. Until now, this has not been undo-able
except through the floodbot maintainer, LjL.

We have found this situation not to be ideal, so we requested that
there be a feature added so operators could whitelist certain hosts
that they feel should not have been banned.

This has now been implemented, and you can use the following command
in #ubuntu-ops-monitor or #kubuntu-ops-monitor to unblock a users

unblock <ip or host>

So for example:



unblock example.com

the bot will then respond with: "Letting *!*@example.com join without
regards to open proxy status"

If you have any questions, please feel free to hunt down one of the
the IRCC or the bot maintainer - LjL.



PS: If you are an #ubuntu or #kubuntu operator, but don't currently
idle in #ubuntu-ops-monitor or #kubuntu-ops-monitor, please poke a
member of the IRCC to give you access
