I don't know if there are other alliances using Slack out there, but the IRC and XMPP gateways are getting shut down:
Hello! We have news to share -- we've decided it's time to close down the IRC and XMPP gateways to Slack.
After years of evolving, Slack is at the point where the gateways can no longer handle all of our features or security needs.
If you've been using the gateways for accessibility reasons, we're glad to let you know that it's now possible to navigate Slack by keyboard and with a screen reader -- and we're making more improvements on a continual basis.
Still, we know this is a disruptive change, and we want to help with this transition in any way we can. Please follow this link to learn more about the upcoming changes:
Never trust a proprietary protocol.
Edit: this probably won't affect bots that relay between Slack and IRC (at least it doesn't affects ours), but it will obviously affect people who use these gateways to connect to Slack (like me).
The outraged poets threw sticks and rocks over the side of the bridge. They were all missing Mary and he felt a contented smug feeling wash over him. He would have given them a coy little wave if the roof hadn't collapsed just then. Mary then found himself in the middle of an understandably shocked family's kitchen table. So he gave them the coy little wave and realized it probably would have been more effective if he hadn't been lying on their turkey.
