We use the heck out of freenode. We sometimes need to add people to channel access lists, give them privileges, etc. Here's a quickie cheat sheet. See m:IRC/Instructions#Instructions for channel ops for more.

Wikimedia used to host a freenode server:

Becoming ops in a channel

/msg chanserv op #channelnamehere

Also /msg chanserv deop #channelnamehere when you are done doing ops things.

Check the access list for a channel

/msg chanserv access #channelnamehere list

Add someone to an access list with a pile of rights

You probably want to give someone what everyone else in the list has. Here's an example though:

/msg chanserv access #channelnamehere add nicknamehere +votsriRfA

Invite someone to a channel (permanently)

This will allow someone to join an invite-only channel. You should use /whois nick to look at how their nick is currently set and use that as the template for the command.

/mode #mediawiki_security +I nick(or *)!*@* (or cloak)

Invite someone to a list temporarily

From within the channel itself:

/invite nicknamehere

Ban someone from a channel

/mode #channelnamehere +b *!*@hostnamehere

You can use wildcards in place of part of the hostname.
