GNOME moves away from GIMPnet on Nov 25 15:00 UTC

I’m not sure what my @gnome.org email is or if I even have one (never needed it). Is there an instruction somewhere on how to access it?

You can only get a gnome.org email alias if you are a member of the GNOME Foundation and you requested it.

This doesn’t seem to be correct. @averi just confirmed to me:

aliases are handed out automatically
as soon as you join the foundation you get a @gnome.org

Your alias is your LDAP login followed by @gnome.org. In my case thibaultamartin@gnome.org

All the mail going to your alias is routed to your primary mail address as defined in GitLab.

Yes, the email set on your matrix account should end with @gnome.org
In my case, I need to configure it to thibaultamartin@gnome.org

Isn’t this the opportunity to drop the IRC bridge? I find it just degrades the experience for both sides.

Here are all the rooms in our GNOME Community Space.

  • GIMPnet alias is the current alias on GIMPnet
  • Libera Chat alias is the alias the channel would have on libera chat. We need to namespace our channels

If you are in charge of one of this rooms/channels and want to use this opportunity to unbridge, please let me know in this post before November 17.

Please, drop this room entirely.

There’s a #gtk room on libera.chat already; it would be nice if we could add a redirect from that to #gnome-gtk. We should keep the bridge as well.

I don’t know who is officially in charge of that channel (if anyone), but the actual discussions about mutter development happen in #gnome-shell. That is, I don’t think it’s worth migrating to libera.chat.

I’m not sure if it’s a good idea to move the channel to #gnome-gtk from a PR standpoint. There’s enough people on social media already hating on GTK as being in the pocket of the Gnome foundation, and renaming the channel to that would just give them more ammunition.

I’d like to avoid that.

Indeed. I think it would be useful to offer projects who already have a presence on Libera Chat the possibility to bridge their channel to the already existing one.

Very valid concern, which has been discussed with the Libera Chat staff already: #gtk is going to keep existing on Libera Chat, and #gnome-gtk is going to redirect to it.

#gtk is going to fall under the same Libera Chat project as GNOME (TLDR: I can claim the channel and perform moderation operations on it if needed) for the sake of simplicity, but I’m happy to hand it to anyone from the GTK gang if that’s something you’d like to handle yourselves instead.

Interesting, I’m not aware of any GNOME project that used to be on GIMPnet and that is already on Libera Chat. It would indeed make sense to keep the existing LC channels and bridge them to the Matrix room. Do you have specific projects in mind?

I am already in the #gtk channel on libera (been there since the freenode disaster), so I can manage it if you want.

If anyone has problems finding out what their passwords are for the various networks they use, and their IRC client of choice is Polari, (un)fortunately those appear in clear text in the telepathy-logger logs, either in:

  • ~/.local/share/TpLogger/logs/idle_irc_* for system-wide telepathy installations, or
  • ~/.var/app/org.gnome.Polari/data/TpLogger/logs/idle_irc_* for Flatpak’ed installations

Thanks Florian for the info.

Would it be possible to redirect #fedora-desktop on GIMPNet to #fedora-workstation on Libera Chat?

Probably not automatically, but we can change the topic of the channel on gimpnet to ask users to go to said channel on Libera Chat. I’ll ask the Fedora community gang if they’re up for it

Before I forget: we should drop #newcomers from IRC as well. Newcomers join and leave, and assume that the channel is logged and/or previous messages are going to be visible. I’d rather have the room only on Matrix, to improve the chances of actually having a conversation.

We were under the impression that #fedora-desktop was already redirecting to #fedora-workstation. That change was approved several months ago. There should not be two separate channels anymore.

I’m fine with #gtk getting the same moderation as the other Gnome channels, but it’d be nice if we got the same ps as we have on Gimpnet, so we can quickly do whatever from IRC.

Shouldn’t it be #gnome-files instead?
