Hi,

As you might've heard, the freenode IRC network is suddenly under new
ownership. Neither the process nor the result are making many people
comfortable, so the old staff collectively packed up and left to start a
new network in its place, with many channels either following them to the
new place (#ubuntu and the OG #gentoo included) or to somewhere else that
is not freenode.

The #systemd regulars have pretty much already moved the channel to this
new network on their own, so I have registered it there as well (as a
"community" since I'm ~not really~ a representative). So if there are no
objections I'll make a PR to update systemd's README files to "s/
freenode.org/libera.chat/g" sometime later.

Sounds good. Please do!
