From Fedora Project Wiki

Sonar_Guy disagrees with any exclusion from the IRC Support SIG. All individuals that support a #fedora-* channel should be able to participate in the SIG and be part of the #fedora-ops channels, also there should be no requirement on activity as that does not allow for IRL issues. Why should somebody be excluded based on the amount of free time afforded them by their IRL? The goes against everything that the Fedora foundation is based upon!
