What are the options or choices for the bridge services that you mention?

As for retention time - does the EU Data Retention Directive apply here?
"According to the directive, member states had to store citizens'
telecommunications data for a minimum of 6 months and at most 24
months."  What about other guidelines or recommendations?

Not sure how to query and notify IRC channel members about the change,
other than to state in the channel Topic, "By logging in and using this
channel you consent to......"

Yes, past history and experience has shown - the discord channel will
need some sort of moderator with the power to ban, mute, kick, etc.
problematic users or bots.
