The IRC channel is public, there is no reason to withhold logs, however,
irc by itself doesn't provide the logging functionality so it has to be
done by a logging irc bot.
The logs are not publically evailable, i never bothered to make an
interface to it.
The ircbot logs to a mysql table so a web interface by itself is trivial.
What i do not intend to do is to develop a search engine to search these
logs, i do not posess the knowledge to do that algorythm.
What I meant with "device me a way" is to send me the code or detailed
instructions to search properly into the logs.
