How will integrations for things like IRC notifications work?


#1

There is no central “service” that could receive a webhook request etc. for IRC, you literally just specify a channel and IRC server.

Will GitHub provide an integration to cover this (assuming “services” will eventually go away) or will everyone need to write their own IRC bot for it and create a custom integration (which is obviously not ideal…)?


#2

@ThiefMaster while our plans around this aren’t solidified, we have discussed providing a few of these core integrations when we deprecate GitHub Services. As we finalize our plans and timeline with this, we’ll be posting a detailed blog post and providing explicit notice.
