Cockpit was affected by the Freenode hostile takeover, so we moved to Now Freenode took over our IRC channel because we mentioned the move. ☹️

Hopefully our users will know we're no longer on Freenode, but on Libera.

Freenode is now a zombie network.

I somehow missed the #freenode kerfuffle a couple of days ago. It really looks like the effective end of Freenode, at least as we knew it, which is a bit sad.

In totally related news, @liberachat, welcome to #fosstodon!
