People who want to use the new ATS community chat through the privacy friendly libera irc can connect to the `##ats_noob` channel on libera, with TWO `##`. I personally used https://web.libera.chat/
We can of course change the irc channel name, see 3. below.
I thank the matterbridge
community for their bridging software which I used to set up the communication bridge, and specifically Mike Gebirge for his help answering my questions on the matterbridge Discord server.
Thanks to Michael Truog for pointing out the privacy question, and thanks to Simon Nielsen for letting me know Matrix might be another interesting medium for ATS.
What now needs to be done :
1. I need someone to configure matterbridge with myconfig file (takes 10mn max, there's binaries available) on a 7/7 24/24 server, because matterbridge currently runs on my laptop and that is not a good solution for obvious reasons ;
2. Simon, could you set up an ATS server on Matrix that we could then add to matterbridge ? Or perhaps is it too much time consuming (I know it took quite some time on Discord to have something which I find nice even if it will improve).
3. Hongwei, would you like (and have the time) to create a real `#ats` channel on libera irc ? I checked, and it is free for registration ! See here for the process : https://libera.chat/chanreg/
I can do it for you, but I will perhaps need to provide your email or something so that people can check that there is a right to claim that name. They also say that one can register a community channel and later if there's a problem with a legal name it can be solved. Let me know how you want to proceed.
