See below about Freenode IRC having been taken over (or considered as 
such by most Freenode admins), which affects our existing #gdal channel.

What should we do:

- give up with IRC at all, and just use the Slack channel ? Would make 
things more simple

- migrate to Libera Chat ?

- something else ?

As many of you might have noticed, there has been some shifting around 
with the Freenode IRC network in the past few days [1][2]. This has 
resulted in a number of Freenode staff members resigning and starting a 
new IRC network.

Considering the future status of Freenode and given the track record of 
the folks involved with the new network called Libera Chat [3], we've 
decided that we're moving #osuosl (and any other related channels) over 
to irc.libera.chat.

We'll keep the Freenode channels alive for a little while longer but 
intend to close them down within a month or so. For those interested, we 
are considering spinning up a Matrix server at some point to provide a 
more rich chat experience but for now we still use IRC for most of our 
communication with FOSS projects.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know otherwise 
we'll see you on Libera Chat in #osuosl!
