It **seems** to me that bridging to Libera.Chat is now working normally: I 
have joined #freebsd-desktop:Libera.Chat in Matrix, for instance, and that 
gets me the IRC channel. Some other Libera.Chat channels work too. This 
suggests it's "good enough"?


OT: (puts on Calamares hat) For the Calamares project, we've ended up with a 
bridge-bot hosted by one of the project participants, freenode <-> libera <-> 
matrix, so while messy the main conversation can be had in Matrix, natively.
