Currently there is really only one, which gets (some) chat but also messages for each and every commit. I don't think the average user needs to see each and every commit. I think we probably need to split these, for instance into Dev and User channels, to match the mailing lists perhaps. )

I am not sure how useful such a dedicated channel would be if only
automated messages will be posted and no discussion takes place.
Sometimes the mplog messages are even used during conversations, like
"see this commit, now it is fixed".

For those that really do not want to see these messages, I would
recommend to add mplog to their your ignore list. That works in IRC
clients and also in Riot.

The bot is operated by me, but if others also think that the bot is
annoying, I do not insist on keeping it running or moving it to another
