It was less than a month ago that we reported on the volunteer staff walkout of the Freenode network, in the face of controversy surrounding control of the IRC network.
Now, Freenode may have ceased to exist entirely.

When I joined Debian IRC on freenode 15 years ago, I never expected I'd be the one to turn out the lights at the end, but that's what I just did.
/topic #debian http://irc.debian.org is http://irc.oftc.net; so long and thanks for all the fish

The Debian Project hosts all its development IRC channels on irc.oftc.net and also has a thriving community on irc.libera.chat. The Debian Project no longer has control of #debian on the freenode IRC network. We thank the former freenode staff for their tireless work over many years. Please read https://wiki.debian.org/IRC for more information about Debian IRC channels.
Now that OONI Probe Desktop & Mobile support automated testing, they're contributing towards the largest volume of global measurements! 🎉
However, legacy-probe (which will soon no longer work) still accounts for a relatively big percentage of measurements.
If you're running legacy ooniprobe, please switch over to OONI Probe CLI: https://ooni.org/install/cli 🙏
Wow, I get really frustrated when I see FOSS communities falling for Microsoft's "pro open source" PR spin - note, they never say anything positive about Copyleft (the "F" in #FOSS). They are no friends of FOSS - they're a parasite. Microsoft loves OSS like a tapeworm loves a healthy digestive system - exploiting what others produce for their own (proprietary) self-interest.

"As a society, we need an open source device for reading. Books are among the most important documents of our culture, yet the most popular and widespread devices we have for reading — the Kobo, the Nook, the Kindle and even the iPad — are closed devices, operating as small moving parts in a set of giant closed platforms whose owners’ interests are not always aligned with readers’.
We released 💫 OONI Probe Desktop 3.5.0💫 with RTL support! 🎉 🐙
OONI Probe Desktop can now support a number of languages that use right-to-left scripts, including Arabic and Farsi! 😍
Warm thanks to the Localization Lab community for the translations! ❤️
