Matrix/Riot: Give #gstreamer a nice title/logo
When using Matrix.org (for example, using Riot or Fractal) to connect to IRC, it synchronizes a Matrix room to an IRC one. This gives people with moderators access (automatically synced to the list of chanops) the opportunity to give a fancy title and logo to a channel.
GNOME does this for several of its channels. See for example a screenshot I took in Fractal:
It's a small change, but it's a nice one for people who use Matrix (especially given that GNOME links to it https://wiki.gnome.org/Community/GettingInTouch/IRC).
This requires not a lot of effort:
- log into Matrix (for example using Riot)
- Register with NickServ (see also https://medium.com/@agathver/staying-always-online-in-irc-using-riot-the-right-way-d4c4ff2f43d0) if you're having difficulties
- join the matrix room #freenode_#GStreamer:matrix.org
- Change the title and logo
The change will persist after you log
