Due to recent developments around the Freenode.org IRC network, the opinions about the usage of this service shifted dramatically.
A small poll in the IRC channel at the end of last week showed that most (actively participating) users wanted to leave freenode and the network with the most positive votes was hackint.org. The new home at ircs://irc.hackint.org/batadv was prepared on Sunday. You can find also other interesting channels in the neighborhood. #freifunk (including many communities), #gluon, #dn42, various CCC channels and many more.
We hope to see you soon in the new channel at ircs://irc.hackint.org/batadv
