FSF, Freenode. 

This will hopefully be my last related post. Today the meets to decide if they will move their channels off of freenode. I won't attend that meeting because (catch-22!) it is on freenode and I already dropped my account. I hope that they decide to move, but either way I'm not moving any of my Free Software support (, , ) activities back. The FSF should meet Free Software where it is, which no longer is on Freenode.

re: FSF, Freenode. 

@bremner I just went to #emacs on libera, and the title says "formerly on freenode". I thought that means it's officially moved?

re: FSF, Freenode. 

@loke according to ops yes. But I guess the Emacs developers get to decide where, if anywhere the "official" project channel is.

re: FSF, Freenode. 

@bremner Most of the developers aren't even on the channel. It's been a while since I saw a message from them there, so I'm not sure they should decide.

re: FSF, Freenode. 

@loke Agreed, I don't think will move in either case, but it would be simpler if the FSF would update their links than if we had to have some weird declaration of independence.

re: FSF, Freenode. 

@bremner do u expect them to stay? i somewhat doubt that but u seem to be unsure

re: FSF, Freenode. 

@khaosgrille I don't know. Sometimes the FSF does things that don't make sense to me.

@bremner hopefully the channel wont get hijacked during the meeting

FSF, Freenode. 

@selea @bremner the channel had a guy on it yesterday defending Lee with very mendacious arguments. I googled him and guess which support letter he signed?

I will not be surprised if they continue to make wrong decisions in this case.

FSF, Freenode. 

@bremner any idea whether they reached a consensus? I’ve had a fruitless time trying to find meeting minutes or some kind of statement of intent

FSF, Freenode. 

@jmtd I think the decision has yet to be finalized / publicized.
