For those who like the environment for communication, there is 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 for updates or help on that task.

  3. Enter the command identify [<nickname>] <password> This will identify your matrix user with Freenode
  4. Open a direct chat (in matrix) with
  5. Use !storepass nickname:password to store your irc nickname and password with matrix to send automatically when you login to matrix
