How does this work exactly ? I mean technologically. As far as I know Slack and Discord don't support bridges to each other.

was going to be a matterbridge bot, but that had bugs that would not go away. Now it's going to be a custom xmpp protocol.

Won't that be a lot of work ? As far as I know discord doesnt bridge to xmpp so that means you ll have to write a bot or use one already written. Same goes for other closed protocols. That s a lot of work. I don t want to dissapoint you but in the end what makes you think people will hang out in public channels ? ( I apologise if I missed something )

protocol is now going to be based on matrix.
