Move SRE-related IRC channels to Libera
Open, HighPublic

Description

For each channel we own, we need to migrate from freenode to libera.

We need to ensure the following:

  • The channels have an owner (go to #-ops and ask for it)
  • Set up logging for public channels. That will need to wait for wm-bot to be migrated, see T283213
  • Add all bots (see T283213 again). Typically you will have wikibugs and wm-bot for public channels.
  • Check the ACLs so that everyone who had access before still has it
  • Check that the channel modes are all set the same as on freenode
  • when everything is set, "close" the channel on freenode by following https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRC/Migrating_to_Libera_Chat#Closing_Freenode_channels

Below is the current status. For "bots", list the ones missing (excluding wm-bot which is for logging), or "yes" if they're all done.

If the channel has an owner in SRE but it's not the final owner list we want, write add an asterisk to "yes".

Please add your channels below.

@bd808 should #-cloud" be on this list, in addition to #-cloud-admin?

I suppose they could be, sure. #wikimedia-cloud, #wikimedia-cloud-admin, #wikimedia-cloud-feed, and our team channel are all up and running on libera.chat. We are waiting for the GCs to grant us ops in #wikimedia-cloud-feed and for T283249: Migrate wm-bot to libera.chat to happen so we can finish things up.

Setting to high so we can move away from freenode asap

I am tempted to set this to UBN given the developments of last night: wikimedia channels including checkuser ones have been taken over by freenode current staff. An example: https://pastebin.com/S2sDiiPE See also https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_Forum&type=revision&diff=21499634&oldid=21497077 We need to be off of there ASAP.

From conversation in irc with gehel and others: -discovery is now -search, an entry bout public logging needs to be added to the topic and wikibugs needs to be invited to the channel, but that's it aiui. So this task is in pretty good shape.

@faidon in light of the recent news regarding freenode actions on "closed" channel, should we keep applying the same procedure or do we want to do something different for the few channels not yet closed on freenode?
