We are now starting a PoC to consider moving our IRC channel at Freenode to Gitter.
So as part of the PoC, our Gitter is now available at:
Among other benefits, Gitter provides provide:
- Rich text and files (and an easier way for people to provide commands, logs, etc). - Notifications - History (without bouncers). - Easy linking to GitHub issues.
It also as an IRC gateway, for those that want to use an IRC client: https://irc.gitter.im/
We invite you all to join, and give it a try during the next two weeks.
Meanwhile, we will be collecting feedback from you at Gitter, IRC and the uyuni-devel and uyuni-users mailing lists 
With the experience and the feedback, we will decide in two weeks.
Best regards, and have a nice weekend!
