New IRC Server for support

Hi folks, you may have heard the news about freenode, and if not, a quick search should solve that.

Because of that, we’ve decided to move the WordPress support-, and social chat to a new network. Discussions about the development of the WordPress coreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. software it self will of course still remain on Slack.

If you’d like to continue being one of our awesome IRC support volunteers, please join us over on the new Libera network, you can do so by connecting to and joining #WordPress, or through their webchat service.

If you previously held a registered nickname on the freenode network, and would like to do the same at Libera, please read their guide on registering names.

Please let us know if you run into any problems!
