Drupal Chat Bridges IRC <-> Matrix <-> Slack

As issue #2490332: Evaluate whether to replace drupal IRC channels with another communication medium has shown, a lot of people have their preference as to what a chat service/protocol should be.
We think we can find a middle ground and just make bridges between all these chat services and protocols in use.
The people behind the Matrix protocol were so kind to free up the #drupal:matrix.org room.

The idea is that we run bridges between those chat protocols. This would mean everyone is on all networks, and crosstalk is possible.

So, instead of bikeshedding endlessly about what service should be used, let’s bridge em together. But for creating a bridge, we need a person with an op on each channel.
Matrix has infrastructure in place to provide such bridges, but someone with an op on IRC is needed to confirm the bridge request. This is the list who received ops over the #drupal irc room on freenode over the years: https://www.pastery.net/sjqwvn

That’s for the IRC part. Now the Slack part. As creating a bridge would need for someone managing the slack channels to set an incoming and outgoing webhook.

Channels interested for bridging:
(I lack a lot of slack channels, probably a lot can be supplemented)

What is needed now? We need people with the +o flag on IRC channels to allow a bridge to start.
On https://www.pastery.net/sjqwvn are users with op flags for the #drupal room.
Speak up to those persons about this issue and let’s get this thing going!
