How to make someone operator automatically

To get the help on Freenode, and with irssi, you could use: /query ChanServ HELP FLAGS

It will switch to the ChanServ window and show the help.

At the time of writing this gives:

***** ChanServ Help *****
Help for FLAGS:

The FLAGS command allows for the granting/removal of channel
privileges on a more specific, non-generalized level. It
supports nicknames, groups and hostmasks as targets.

When only the channel argument is given, a listing of
permissions granted to users will be displayed.

Syntax: FLAGS <#channel>

Otherwise, an access entry is modified. A modification may be
specified by a template name (changes the access to the
template) or a flags change (starts with + or -). See the
TEMPLATE help entry for more information about templates.

If you are not a founder, you may only manipulate flags you
have yourself, and may not edit users that have flags you
don't have. For this purpose, +v grants the ability to grant
+V, +o grants the ability to grant +O, and +r grants the
ability to grant +b.

As of Atheme 7.0, there are now extended entity targets
which allow you to match chanacs against a situation instead
of against a nickname, hostmask or group.

Available exttargets are:
$chanacs:#channel - Any user with channel access in the given channel
                      (including hostmasks).

If you do not have +f you may still remove your own access
with -*.

Syntax: FLAGS <#channel> [nickname|hostmask|group template]
Syntax: FLAGS <#channel> [nickname|hostmask|group flag_changes]

    +v - Enables use of the voice/devoice commands.
    +V - Enables automatic voice.
    +o - Enables use of the op/deop commands.
    +O - Enables automatic op.
    +s - Enables use of the set command.
    +i - Enables use of the invite and getkey commands.
    +r - Enables use of the unban command.
    +R - Enables use of the recover, sync and clear commands.
    +f - Enables modification of channel access lists.
    +t - Enables use of the topic and topicappend commands.
    +A - Enables viewing of channel access lists.
    +S - Marks the user as a successor.
    +F - Grants full founder access.
    +b - Enables automatic kickban.
    +e - Exempts from +b and enables unbanning self.

The special permission +* adds all permissions except +b, +S, and +F.
The special permission -* removes all permissions including +b and +F.

    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo
    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo foo!* VOP
    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo foo!* -V+oO
    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo foo!* -*
    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo foo +oOtsi
    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo TroubleUser!*@* +b
    /msg ChanServ FLAGS #foo !baz +*
***** End of Help *****

So to make GNUtoo an operator we can use: /msg ChanServ FLAGS #replicant GNUtoo +O
