Are pfSense irc chat moving to libera - Now that freenode has had a hostile takeover ?
Is the freenode.net #pfsense channel a Netgate managed thing ?
Are pfSense irc chat moving to libera - Now that freenode has had a strange takeover ?
I just made an account on irc.libera.chat.
And noticed that the #pfsense there has 33 users vs 512 users on the freenode.net.
I for one would like to support the new irc.libera.chat , before everything goes up in $$$.
The old freenode.net was everything FOSS stands for.
@bingo600 Sad there's no response so seems less people are interested in IRC. And now there's even three channels: the original one on the hostile freenode and two (#pfsense and ##pfsense) on libera. :/
Hmmm .. Why 2 pfSense channels on libera ?
That makes no sense
@bingo600 I don't know but suspect, one (#pfsense) was claimed in an attempt to reserve it for Netgate or the project and the second one (##pfsense) is - per liberas guidelines - a community channel and created/maintained by users/community (it also has an apropriate channel message that says it's not official/netgate driven). So that's OK but doesn't make much sense. :)
