I'd personally prefer Libera Chat. They don't yet have a published
formal governance model, but I hope this will come soon. As the former
Freenode staff, I trust them to make sure mistakes from the past won't
be repeated.

Apart from politics, Libera also offers a more modern feature set. This
can ease daily usage, with features such as reliable authentication,
account tracking, and many other IRC protocol improvements. OFTC has
plans to eventually migrate to Solanum, but they don't have the time to
do it for now.

For reference, on OFTC:

    CAP LS 302 CAP * LS :multi-prefix

And on Libera:

    CAP LS 302 CAP * LS :account-notify away-notify chghost extended-join multi-prefix sasl=PLAIN,ECDSA-NIST256P-CHALLENGE,EXTERNAL tls userhost-in-names account-tag cap-notify echo-message
