Hi all,

I just registered the Racket project on irc.libera.chat with ownership of #racket and #racket-*.

Would those who have served as chanops on freenode who are willing to also do the same for libera.chat please email me privately to let me know your nick etc.?

Thanks!

Tony

Hello,

I am always advocating for being cautious - rather than rushing into
quick decisions (which may prove wrong later on). However, given known
facts, the situation with Freenode won't probably change for any better
in the foreseeable future.

I'd like to hear more opinions though before I (or anyone else) change
the topic on Freenode to include information about "official" (whatever
that means) channel being moved to libera.chat.

I am personally in favor of that.


Cheers,
Dominik

Experience in other channels indicates that saying you are moving to
libera.chat will get the quick response of having your administrator
privileges revoked and having that message deleted.

Yes... but you'll have to do that on other channels we are still in
control of -- such as websites and mailing lists to that everyone
interested has a chance of getting the message.

Things seem to be getting worse on freenode.

If there are any achival messages on freenode (probably not, if I
understand how IRC works), it would be good to do an off-freenode backup
before announcing the switch.

And keep logging freenode channel activity until everyone has moved.

For what it is worth, that has not been my experience. I have moved
several channels to libera.chat (either just by setting /topic, or
taking more extreme measures that effectively lock the freenode
channel), and nobody has cared/responded so far. Of course there is now
a policy such channels can officially be taken over on freenode, but in
the long term I don't expect to control what happens on freenode in my
absence.

Yes, I spoke too soon apparently. #notmuch was also hijacked last
night. I have deleted my freenode account.
