TL;DR: #centos and #centos-* are moving to libera.chat

Over the past few days, there has been some upheaval on the Frenode
IRC network, resulting in a number of the staff members quitting and
starting a new IRC network. I wont attempt to explain all the details
here, but you can read more at https://kline.sh which also links to
other sources.

The various ops have discussed the situation, and we intend to migrate
all of the various #centos-* channels from Freenode over to
irc.libera.chat over the coming days.

This will take time, since libera is still spinning up, and some
servers are moving from one network to the other.

As libera is still in the early stages of setup, you may have
significantly more timeouts/disconnects, netsplits and other issues
for now. Until the new network is fully stable, we'll all continue
to be present in the Freenode chanels.

Please bring further questions to the IRC channels (on either network).
