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 freenode IRC network is under new management. After 20 years as senior staff I have resigned along with all my colleagues: blog.bofh.it/debian/id_461

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.

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!🀞🀞🀞
