After the hostile takeover of #freenode comes the hostile takeover of the channels. New freenode "staff" has stolen #fosdem , the third-largest channel on freenode, from us.
FOSDEM has moved to @liberachat and we urge you to move to @liberachat or #OFTC immediately.
@FOSDEM & @grafana have just been registered as projects on @liberachat . Huge project backlog because of the mass migration.
We'll wind down the IRC channels on freenode ASAP and not look back.
Anything official, help, etc -> irc.libera.chat
See you on the otter side.
We're honoured and a bit overwhelmed by the positive response since we opened the doors just 2 days ago.
In that time over 300 projects and communities have contacted us about group registration and we're doing our best to get back to all of you as soon as possible.
The first batch of @FOSDEM 2021 video review request emails have been sent out.
We tried to automate review this year, but after just over a week of experimenting I decided that it couldn't be done without a massive amount of development, which would only delay things.
Want all the gory details of how we hosted the world's largest free/open source conference #FOSDEM21 via Matrix? We just posted the full writeup at matrix.org/blog/2021/02/15/h…. Huge thanks to @FOSDEM for putting their faith in Matrix & to everyone who helped make it a success! 🎉❄️🎆
It's a wrap! @FOSDEM 2011 is over, complete with confetti cannon and fireworks in the closing keynote. Huge thanks to @FOSDEM for choosing Matrix to power the conference; we hope that it captured enough of the vibe of the real event :) Hopefully see you at ULB in 2022!🤞🤞🤞
We would like to thank you all for attending, all the help from the many many volunteers and hope to see you (in person) again next year! Please help us improve by sending feedback to email@example.com
#FOSDEM21 is coming to an end and it was awesome as always 🤘
