Implement changing channel ownership
There is currently no method for changing the owner of a channel.
- A channel owner should be able to assign ownership of their channel to another user
- Team admins and System Admins should be able to assign ownership of any channel to another user
Enterprise Edition includes Channel Admins: https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/managing-members.html#channel-admin.

I'm sorry but what is this notion of channel ownership I don't see it documented anywhere. What does it mean to own a channel? Looks to me like anything can add, rename, or delete any channel without restrictions

I agree. Just erasing ownership because a user leaves a channel with no means of restoring that ownership seems a bit heavy handed.
