- We are attempting to make the Fedora chat experience as good as possible whether connecting via IRC or Matrix. IRC users may miss out on some Matrix features, but all official :fedoraproject.org rooms (with a few documented exceptions) will be bridged to corresponding channels on libera.chat.
- We want popular Fedora channels to be available to users on IRC, and so we provide a bridge in many rooms, but some :fedoraproject.org rooms may not have an IRC bridge, and we’ll ask if it’s wanted or not as part of setting up new rooms.
- We’re aiming to transition to a Matrix-first world, and eventually retire the IRC bridge. Therefore, we bridge existing rooms which correspond to IRC channels, but will remove the bridge in those rooms if room consensus is to do so, and will not set up new bridges except as documented exceptions.
- something else?
