We used it yesterday for RIF, and it worked well.  Use "6" to mute and

The big difference from Zakim was in not having people automatically
identified.  The chair should decide whether it's important to have an
accurate attendee list.  If it's not important, I suggest just skipping
it, because it's a pain.

If it is important, then you'll want to listen carefully for the beeps
when someone joins and make sure you have recorded their name, etc.  The
phrasing I've heard is the chair or Team Contact saying, "Welcome to
SWEO, who is calling, please?" if they don't say their name as they
join.  (If you type on IRC a line like "+Ivan" or "+Sandro" then the
bots will do the usual things with the attendee list.)
