Updating IRC channel entry message to explain Gitter mirroring

Postby kkremitzki » Mon Feb 27, 2017 3:01 am

In the IRC channel, we have a user "FreeCADBot" who mirrors messages between https://gitter.im/FreeCAD/FreeCAD and IRC. Oftentimes when there is a conversation between Gitter and IRC, the person in the IRC channel addresses FreeCADBot instead of the person whose message is being mirrored, leading to confusion.

Can someone with the privileges to do so update the entry message in #FreeCAD to include something like "FreeCADBot is mirroring chat between gitter.im/FreeCAD/FreeCAD and IRC!"

Speaking of power, it looks like it's been made invite-only...

It shouldn't be, I might have screwed something up. Please check if it works normally again now?

I can't join the #FreeCAD channel on Freenode IRC either.
