Joined you there.
The issue with matrix is that you can already use it as a bouncer to follow the kontalk IRC channel (I nowadays follow the irc channels I am active in via riot.im), which kinda makes the presence of a matrix room obsolete when an irc room already exists.
In any case, if it’s not too much trouble for @daniele_athome, I guess we could consider bridging it.
It seems I have to install something on a server… is there any service I could use?
I think it is possible to do this the opposite way. @buzz-dee can you try enabling the IRC bridge via the matrix channel settings?
This is the screen I get, but am not authorized to proceed:
I see that we need authorization from a channel operator. Tell me what I have to do on the IRC side.
