What channels? Wikidata in chat to #wikidata in freenode? We need to have a central place maintained by the community to keep the configuration.

I can confirm that the bot software mentioned above works, among other protocols seems to support IRC and I have installed it for testing a bridge between Slack and Mattermost. My intention is promote Wikimedia Chat on WMEE Slack workspace and I consider it a temporary helper bridge. As anybody can install that kind of bot I suppose the bug report is to have it running as a central service offered by Wikimedia Chat, is that right?

This bridge should be permanent (having discussion split in two place is a nightmare), unless we decided to deprecate IRC (which I strong oppose as using Freenode may mitigate the impact of an outage).

Ladsgroup claimed this task.

This is done now, we have mattermost mirroring in wikidata channel between IRC and wikidata. If you need another one, let me know and I set it up.

Note: this should be a two-way bridge, not a one-way one.

It is a two way bridge
