For those who like the http://matrix.org environment for communication, there is https://matrix.to/#/+osgeo:matrix.org community.

Access to community rooms is mostly public. Many rooms are bridged already to corresponding IRC channels.

In case of problem, you may contact User:Strk.

OSGeo does not currently host a Matrix homeserver but might do so in the future, see https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/2309 for updates or help on that task.


To fully use Matrix, you should register your irc nickname with matrix. To do so

  1. in matrix, open a room connection to @freenode_NickServ:matrix.org, this will connect you to the freenode nickserv
  2. enter the command identify [<nickname>] <password> This will register your matrix user with your irc nickname
  3. to do this automatically each time, open a direct chat (in matrix) with @appservice-irc:matrix.org
  4. use !storepass nickname:password to store your irc nickname and password with matrix to send automatically when you login to matrix

Then restart your matrix session to test
