Well, the text explicitly asks to *avoid* using the #debian-ro Freenode 
in order not to split the already small community, but there is no need 
explicitly single out Freenode or any other IRC network.

Attached a proposed patch (assuming there are still some other readers 
on -l10n-romanian).

It appears I don't have commit rights anymore (just requested via 
Salsa), so I couldn't just push it.

Subject: [PATCH] make the text slightly more generic

There is no need to explicitly mention Freenode here as the same recommendation
(please don't split the already very small community) applies to any other IRC
