On #debian-devel, we tend to answer the same questions over and over again: - when will the freeze start? ("not today") - can someone help me with autoconf? ("-> #devtools") - i cannot get my sound working? ("-> #debian, #alsa") [ad infinitum...] The /topic is used for the most important stuff, but its limited in length, and not everybody reads it. I would thus like to invite gort, my (supy)bot, to the forum and enable its factoids module for use in the channel. I would lock the database so that it does not get poisoned with crap (like dpkg in #debian), but I would grant write access to whomever requests it. The bot would fulfill no other purpose (!) than to answer requests like: < madduck> ~tell johndoe about freeze < gort> johndoe: we are not freezing today If you think this is a good idea, then simply wait. If you are absolutely against it, then please reply in private (reply-to set); i shall summarise for the list. If I don't hear big complaints, I shall invite gort on over in a couple of days and we'll take it for a test drive. -- Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them! .''`. martin f. krafft <email@example.com> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, and user `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
