"All" is a stretch, there were plenty of free/libre open source
projects on OFTC long before this latest episode of Freenode drama.
Also OFTC isn't being suggested "just because." We've been making
provisions to relocate our services to OFTC for over 7 years in case
something ever happened to sufficiently offset the pain of moving
(getting people to update their client configs, editing all our
contributor docs...), with general acknowledgement from the
community that it would have been a better choice for us from the
beginning had we actively selected a network.
