[Gluster-users] Freenode takeover and GlusterFS IRC channels

I'm relatively new to the community but I would vote for having a point 
of presence on libera.chat, or OFTC as some other F/OSS projects are 
moving there as an alternative. I use IRC daily for supporting my own 
projects as well as related projects such as GlusterFS. Personally I 
hadn't heard of Matrix until the whole Freenode fiasco happened, so I 
would imagine others may be in the same boat. Anyway, just my $0.02 :)
