While riseup.net is closing down their #XMPP service (thank you for hosting us so long!),
we're looking for a new home.
And you may be interested in this discussion too https://floss.social/@ademalsasa/105587887622215525 where XMPP was mentioned so many times including Movim.
diasp.in and poddery.com both offers xmpp (I'm part of both communities/admin teams). All xmpp rooms are bridged to matrix by default. For IRC, the admin can setup the bridge easily.
Reason they discontinue:
"We have have not enabled any additional jabber functionality that would store more information. However, for basic service, we have some details in the database of users, and probably their ‘buddy lists’. This service is not very well used, and we are considering discontinuing it because we’d rather not have any of this data." - Quote from an interview with riseup.net

What kind of bridging is expected? (i.e. matterbridge, or something more complex?)
And is it one room, one set of rooms, or a dedicated tails subdomain?
