Dear all,

Today, Ralph and I braced ourselves and went onto the fedora-meeting,
fedora-meeting-1 and fedora-meeting-2 calendars on fedocal and moved all the
meetings in there into other calendars.

With the introduction of the meeting location, having a dedicated calendar for
the irc chans does not make sense anymore, the calendar should be organized by
interest/team and the location field should provide the information about where
the meeting is being held.

Also please note *not* to use the format `#irc-chan` in the meeting location,
otherwise the `#` sign ends-up in the url when displaying the agenda of a
location [1] and that leads to weird issue as `#` is a special character for
I updated all the locations that were using `#fedora-meeting` to use
`fedora-meeting at irc.freenode.net` and I will check on this every once in a

Note that to use the new .nextmeeting command [2] on irc, you will need to have
the location set properly on fedocal

We have tried to be as careful as possible, so all your meetings should be
there, but in case we missed something do not hesitate to let us know, either
here or on #fedora-admin.

Ralph & Pierre
