    so we get permission denied
    is it possible to have other admins in bridged gitter-matrix rooms ?

    the room is
    we have two other rooms we'd like to bridge as well:

    Maybe an option is to debridge the room, make a new matrix room, then bridge the two rooms
    But not sure if that's possible to do with gitter now

    I'd go with the "ask the admins" approach tbh

    Ok cool
    Do you want to set up the matrix room?
    Or I can do it

    Tip: when moving the bridge to another room you can manually set a custom tombstone to redirect the users

    madlittlemods (Eric Eastwood) thanks for the fast reply... however there is unexpected (to me) behavior, and i don't know if something's broken, or I just don't understand next steps :(
    right now, the current matrix room and gitter rooms aren't bridged anymore
    forgive me if this is obvious
    but I don't want to migrate the existing matrix community to this new room

    It's only possible to bridge Gitter to a single Matrix room. We can put a tombstone in the old rooms to move people over to the new one

    i'd really not want to do that...
    i didn't realize the old room wouldn't be bridged anymore... apologies, but if there's no other way, can we revert the changes?

    if moving the existing matrix users over is the only solution, I'll need to have a discussion with my team first, and it's nighttime in europe
    yes of course, I apologize for having to even ask for one back and forth
    it was not my intention
    :(

    All good. As an alternative, we can revert to the old rooms and you could setup your own Telegram bridge in the room which doesn't require admin privileges

    Now that I know just enough about bridges to break things, I'll have to look into this option (and others) more deeply 😅

    thank you 🙏 and for your patience 💚
    that's what I was looking into before, yes...
    The end result that I'm hoping for is to have rooms which can be accessed from {Matrix/Gitter/Telegram} and the UX is smooth
    like right now, it's not obvious who's in Gitter and who's in Matrix
    it's just one big room
    and one bridge I got working made every message from/to Telegram look like it was quoted and sent by a bot

    my experience with matrix/gitter/telegram is just as admin and user, never got into the code or hosted

    madlittlemods (Eric Eastwood): thanks for the links, I'll take a look
    now that the rooms are working and it's EOD here, I'm gunna sign off... appreciate the help 💚

    I think I really want is a double puppeted bridge: https://matrix.org/docs/guides/types-of-bridging#double-puppeted-bridge
    but this also seems hard 😅

    Double puppeting would be immensely helped by oauth style permissions in Matrix
    I've always loathed to work on the feature as it means giving up your access token with full rights to the bridge.
    Fine if it's your own bridge, less fine if it's a public one

    AFAIK our matrix room is fully managed by the gitter-badger... is that not the same thing?
    madlittlemods (Eric Eastwood): sanity check here -- is it not possible to add me as admin to our existing matrix rooms governed by the gitter-badger?
