Howdy,

we've been trying out the ChanTracker [0] plugin in the bot named Drone` for a 
few months now. The bot has been run in "debug" mode with the output in 
#ubuntu-ops-monitor. Now we're ready to enable it in one of the channels.

ChanTracker is a ban management and channel protection plugin. Its main benefit 
is that it can detect and take different actions to more types of attacks [1] 
than unopaste (the current flood bot) supports. A few additional benefits would 
include announcing mode changes in the control channel, and the ability to set 
temporary exempts for users that will auto-expire.

While the plugin supports full ban management capabilities, the goal is only to 
use it as attack provention. Thus, ubottu should still be used for comments and 
setting the duration of bans.

For more information about the plugin and all its capabilities, please see the 
readme[3]; ask Unit193 on IRC.
