[Development] Mirror IRC channels on KDE's Matrix Instance

I also use Element (on MacOS) since the Qt CS times. Here are some hints from my experience. For the Qt CS, I created an account on matrix.org<http://matrix.org> and added it to Element. This is a separate account, not your KDE account.

Chat channels are called “Rooms” in Element. Searching for Rooms is under Rooms -> “+” -> "Explore public rooms”, but the search doesn’t work so well or the indexing is not ready for the new mirrored IRC channels yet. I tried to search for “qt”, and only the one for Qt Created shows up.

I added channels directly by copy-n-paste from the list in the Cristians’s email into the"Explore rooms” field showing up under  "Explore public rooms” , e.g. #qt:kde.org<http://kde.org> . It cannot be found, but you can just hit the “join” button and you are done.

I hope this helps!

PS. As a yet another web app, Element eats another 700MB RAM, plus 1.4GB RAM for its “renderer" on my mac… 2GB per a web app?… Wow…
