Always-on IRC proxy hosted by the project?

As was discussed some weeks ago, there was a proposal for moving away from Discord and to use IRC, on FreeNode, instead.

There are many options to connecting to IRC, including the use of proxys allowing to have some kind of always-on presence.

Would it be possible to host one on the project’s platform for contributors to stay connected ?

That might as well help those with anti-IRC policy enforced, to participate to live discussions ?

Not sure we want to host this infrastructure, we’re already pretty pressed operationally. I think continuing to use our community forums as a primary form of async communication is ideal, so that everything is easily searchable. For synchronous communications, we have our weekly standups.
