Ok, fine. I was rather referring to that we probably want to mention the channel on the website as one possibility of getting and giving support.
I don't think it should be mentioned as if its an official "support" method unless it is clear there are actually active aware Geany experts available. That doesn't have to be just devs, some of the other well known and knowledgeable contributors would occasionally answer questions on IRC (thanks all) and presumably that would continue. But there were long periods of crickets chirping on there too when questions went unanswered. So calling it a "support" method is setting an expectation that is likely to disappoint users unless more active participation is certain.
I'm not saying don't mention it, but under "Other" something like "There is a Geany <Matrix thingy> at #abc:def.ghi where someone might be able to help if you have a question, but it is not guaranteed anyone is available" or similar.
If you want to write a bot to get the history on geany.org, or to serve coffee and drinks, then that's another story. However, the protocol (and python API for it) has been stable in my personal experience.
I know it will be very hard for Lex but no, I don't want to have again that bot and logs on the website and all this. I set this stuff up more than ten years ago and at that time I thought it's absolutely necessary and the hottest stuff :).
Has it only been around ten years? Or are you just trying to hide how olde we are all getting ;-)
