Phase out #wikimedia-quibble IRC channel in favor of #wikimedia-releng
Open, LowPublic

Description

We have created the #wikimedia-quibble IRC channel for Quibble in 2021 (T286770) with the intention to facilitate exchanges about it.

@Krinkle had wikibugs to also relay messages to #wikimedia-releng (gerrit-channel: Include integration/quibble in #wikimedia-releng).

Given the channel barely has any discussion and notifications are already in releng, I suggest to redirect the channel to #wikimedia-releng.

wikibugs2, wm-bot would need to be adjusted.

wm-bot2 and wmopbot are managed by IRC volunteer ops in #wikimedia-ops to manage channel rights and I guess they can set the redirection.

Event Timeline

wmopbot can be parted with !part by any of the ops in #wikimedia-ops

ircservserv can be cleaned up with a appropriate patchset.

wm-bot can be parted by by the wm-both channel admin or a global admin - https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wm-bot#@part

The channel can then be redirect with the normal channel modes for on the access list with the appropriate rights.

Sounds like we need to contact folks still in the channel + IRC operators to close it.

There is still some bots (ircservserv-wm, wm-bot2, wmopbot) and we need redirect to #wikimedia-releng.
