[HOT] meetbot in #hot irc channel

Over on the Fedora Project irc channels, we have the meetbot functionality
incorporated into our irc bot.  Anyone logged in to the irc channels can
issue commands to the bot but the convention for meetings is that we wait
for the chair to issue the #startmeeting command.  It is useful for the
chair to #addchair one or two other participants in case they have to leave
before the meeting ends as only a meeting chair can #endmeeting.  This
seems to work well and supports many meetings per week.
