Last week, the Prioritized Bugs and Fedora CoreOS meetings discovered we both expected to be in #fedora-meeting-1 at the same time. This is in part because there are five variations of #fedora-meeting-1 on Fedocal.
The best fix would require some development effort, which is know isn’t a priortity right now. But in the interim, would it be possible to bulk edit existing meetings to use the same style of IRC channel listing? For example
- Make all of the fedora-meeting variations into
firstname.lastname@example.org/(this is apparently the style that zodbot expects)
- Remove the other variations so they don’t show up in the locations listing
(And then do this for -1, -2, -3 also.) This wouldn’t help prevent new meetings from using the wrong format, but at least makes existing meetings consistent until we have a better long-term solution.
(Full disclosure: it turns out that in this case, I was the one who used the wrong format. Probably when making the Freenode → Libera change)
