cool, may I ask: Is there really already a matrix server? If yes, how is it deployed? I am asking because I am currently the maintainer of the package matrix-synapse in OBS.

I completely forgot about this ticket, whoops.
I actually went ahead and bridged openSUSE Discord with community on matrix: (which hopefully if and when will be moved to own homeserver, and just aliased to one). I would say that this configuration with discord<->matrix<->irc would be better, because bridges for matrix are generally of very high quality :D

Is anything left to do here?
Or can we simply close the ticket?

#7 Updated by hellcp over 2 years ago

There is a lot to do, but we should probably start with "setup matrix" instead of "setup bridges", because relying on (as we do now) is a terrible idea, considering the amount of traffic and the delays related to that traffic.

This is blocked by some ipv6 issues in ticket #63463

#9 Updated by hellcp over 1 year ago

I started testing with matterbridge, and #opensuse-admin has been successfully spammed to death, so I would say it's a success: I will migrate all of our channels to matterbridge if becomes a thing, because right now the matrix side looks messy
