This is a 100% draft concept. Marking private as it may discuss legal + finanical things soon.
We can't comfirm anything so I also don't want to attract any attention to it.
Currently, A number of bots that provide varying level of functionality to Miraheze Users (maybe we could review whether any could be merged etc and how best to do this but not 100% yet) are hosted on Wikimedia Toolforge.
This is not ideal and technically a ToS breach and as we continue to grow and more actively develop, not ideal for us.
We should bring these under our control on a off-production server providing semi-official hosting of some bots.
We also have things like void-bot that are maintained and dependant on a single user.
There is a possibilty that post pandemic some funding may be available for it.
This task is to create a plan for the service and discuss possible ways in which it could operate and link with Miraheze.
