I have been reading a bit around that issue, and I’d like to explain a bit my current position:
From what I have seen so far, I am unconvinced what happened is fairly characterized as a hostile takeover, nor that we should consider Andrew Lee a malicious party. It looks more like incompetence and miscommunication than malice. In that spirit I dont see any strong reason to rush out of freenode right now, at least not due to freenode staff resigning. I did not trust or distrust anybody at freenode before, I still dont, and quite frankly I am surprised of privacy concerns about who runs a centralized, plain text protocol server.
That said, my point is not that we should not move, its merely that I dont feel a rush to make a decision. There is a technical argument to be made in favor of moving: IRCv3 support in libera.chat is much better, so if we were to move I’d favor them over oftc.
I hope that makes sense, as I said, this is based on what I’ve seen so far, I could have missed some information and I am not familiar with all the existing IRC networks and their reputation.
