IRC channel #debian-malaysia registered on FREENODE server and bridge on matrix protocol
- Robbi contacted previous debmal community about his idea to revamp / restart / continue / start Debian Malaysia local group
We use FREENODE instead of using OFTC server for IRC, because we believe it have more active ops and users and it offer web-based IRC client which easier for new comers to use (OFTC also offer web-based IRC too, if you're curious)
- Plus we mostly can find Malaysian people whom active on others opensource project on FREENODE too, so staying on same server is much convenient.
- Jonathan Cristopher Carter and Moray Allan give talk during Debconf20 about the possibility of setting up a local group support team bootstrapped, support, administer/approve budgets, create/distribute Debian merchandise and many more in a proper way.
