|The Gentoo Council held an emergency single agenda item meeting today. At this meeting, the council's unanimous decision was that the official IRC presence of Gentoo should be moved to the Libera Chat IRC network and that this move be complete at latest by 13-June-2021.
A full log of the meeting will be available soon.
At the moment it is unclear whether we will retain any presence on Freenode at all; we urge all users of the #gentoo channel namespace to move to Libera Chat immediately.
IRC channel names will remain identical. You will be able to recognize Gentoo developers on Libera Chat by their IRC cloak in the usual form gentoo/developer/*.
All other technical aspects will feel rather familiar to all of us as well.
Detailed instructions for setting up various IRC clients can be found on the Help Pages of the IRC network.
