[UbuntuWomen] ubuntu-women IRC channel to become a Ubuntu core channel - why?

It was on the schedule because Lyz was checking into seeing if
becoming an Ubuntu core channel would help with some of the trollish
behavior that has been experienced in the channel more frequently

As a side note - I asked Lyz months ago why UW wasn't an Ubuntu core
channel as I was just curious.  Which led to - how does a team/project
become one?  What criteria does a team/project have to meet to be
defined as a core channel.

While Lyz was not able to attend the meeting, I did and I just asked
the questions I had.  I did not at the time of the meeting address
Lyz's main reason for adding Ubuntu Women becoming an Ubuntu Core IRC
channel request to the IRCC meeting agenda as I was unaware at the
time of the meeting her intent behind the request.

I believe (Lyz correct me if I am wrong) Lyz was checking into if this
would be possible and gathering information on the topic to present to
the team. I don't believe she was asking for a decision to be made but
rather she was gathering the infomation to bring it before the team in
a monthy meeting. The IRCC still needs to define the requirments of
how teams/projects become core IRC channels.  No formal request to
have any of the UW IRC project channels can happen until 1) the
process and requirements of a new channel being added to the core IRC
channels are defined and 2) a discussion is held amongst the UW
Project team members.

Hope this clears up any confusion or concerns about this.
