just to keep pepole in the loop the irc bridge in matix works pretty well
other then needint to auth to nickserve because we require regeistered nics which is documented here
i was able to connect vai https://app.element.io/ and talk to in the infra channel with an old matix account i have
the sign in process and account creation process is also pretty trival
since you can use github or an exisitng google account amoung several others.
so for those looking to use matrix you can do that today.
i previously used this on my phone with the riot client in the past but just went fo driect irc more recently not aht i
use etiehr on mobile frequently. just an fyi for those that were interested.
