Freenode, the network that hosts our IRC communities, is in the middle 
of some important community changes. TL;DR: most of the volunteer staff 
resigned in protest with what looks like a sell-out of the network and 
its user data.

You can read some more details here:


While Freenode won't shut down tomorrow morning, this still raises some 
questions whether Qt wants to keep its community there or move to 
another network. (The ex-staff has founded another network, libera, 
where most people are moving.)

Who's in charge of the online Qt communities? What's the process to 
decide about this?
