The board of KDE e.V. endorses such a coordinated move.

(The e.V. exists to support the KDE community; the community doesn't need 
permission for this, but I thought I'd make it clear that the board discussed 
it. If there is something specific needed, then the e.V. can help out -- but I 
think that our group contacts for IRC itself and our IRC friends and Matrix 
folks for bridging are already on it and "just" need to push the button.)


PS. FreeBSD also announced a wholesale transition to Libera today. That leaves 
the #kde-freebsd channel in a weird superposition of states :) Channel elders 
have basically decided to migrate to #freebsd-desktop on Libera.
