One option (following a bit what Andy wrote below) would be to do nothing immediately, but instead discuss this in the upcoming Qt Contributor’s Summit to plan the next steps.

While there is currently a lot of turmoil around freenode they have not disappeared or intend to do so (https://freenode.net/news/freenode-is-foss) and we should consider multiple sides of the view before making the decision on communication platform.

Sure it is.  My vote is to do nothing (stay on Freenode), and let our IRC presence continue its fade into obscurity.

Then replace it with something better as the officially endorsed community chat.
