I disagree. Matrix just does not work. I've been using with
friends with mixed homeservers, chat.privacytools.io,
and self-hosted homeservers... I've sometimes not received
tens of messages in a row, usually for a duration of at
least 15 mins
and there's obviously no indication whatsoever that I didn't
messages except that the discussion does not make sense at
all. And this
happened to three other people on the room, each on a
than the other, so not a PEBKAC :) Sometimes there are
messages too (I've seen 30min delays), so the whole context
For a federated chat solution, that's really a bummer that
feature is just so buggy it's unusable.
If YP is ok with potentially not receiving questions or
ask questions and not receive answers, then fine by me :)
I'm probably among the small (?) minority of people
issues but that's not a bet I'd take with my projects.
I think the question of setting up Matrix for our
community is a valid question, though I think it's
orthogonal to the current problem. If freenode goes away ,
we need an alternate plan to move *right away* to another
IRC server. If we want to setup addition communications
means (such as Matrix or anything else) that needs to be
discussed and it might take more time.
First let me say, there is nothing wrong with matrix, have used
it every day for years
the discussion is now about libre
there's a relay to relay stuff between libera and freenode?!
LiberaRelay (relay@2607:f5a0:0:7::9) has joined #hardenedbsd
