Starting with today the Debian IRC host alias irc.debian.org directs
to irc.oftc.net maintained by the Open and Free Technology Community
(OFTC). An increasing number of online discussions has been taken
place in this network already despite irc.debian.org pointing to a
different network. In recognition of that, Debian has decided to move
the irc.debian.org alias over.
