sourcehut is a network of useful open source tools for software project maintainers and collaborators, including git repos, bug tracking, continuous integration, and mailing lists.

I’ve tried it already and it’s really neat. Drew was also very nice and explained me a lot of stuff :3
What are your thoughts?

Does it work like a normal soju instance? So you can connect to multiple servers, and connect to it over any client? I have a copy of soju running elsewhere, but it’d be nice to just use one set up by someone smarter.

Answering my own questions, it’s literally just a soju instance, works fantastic. I already pay for an account so I’m using it now.

Yup, like zote said, it is a regular soju instance with a gamja client served too. You can connect to any network and chat away! I have tried Libera and OFTC for now and it worked wonders :)

Yes soju seems like a quite nice modern IRC bouncer. But IMHO even better would have been hosting their own IRC network instead of contributing to libera.chat centralization.

I’ve read somewhere else (don’t recall where) that they didn’t want to do that now, but may do further down the road. I think it’s fair; properly running a network isn’t trivial, and this is already a great contribution to the IRC scenery.

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
