IRC & Bugbot

Hi all,

As some have noticed, bugbot has silently gone away, with no notice or
message from it's maintainers. By all accounts it has now been
(silently) taken over by Mozilla, and now serves Mozilla projects
exclusively and no longer interacts with other bug trackers. Nice of
them to tell anyone....

Fortunately thanks to Harald Sitter we've now equipped sKreamer (the
forum rss bot, among other things) with the ability to act as a
replacement for bugbot, at least in regards to working with
bugs.kde.org. Other trackers are not supported.

As they no longer have any use for the information, i've also severed
the bug email flow that bugs.kde.org was previously sending to
bugbot at landfill.bugzilla.org effective immediately. All bugs will
continue to be notified to kde-bugs-dist at kde.org as usual.

Regards,
Ben Cooksley
KDE Sysadmin
