I share the same opinion with Jonas. Its trying to bridge 2 different
rooms working on something totally different things.
If some discussion happens in #debian-in IRC and all of a sudden if a
bot comes in the middle dumping some thing totally unrelated stuff
people will get totally annoyed. If it is a person talking it can be
understandable but here its not a person but a bot representing people
who are not even present on IRC channel.
