Because I discussed with them... the initial plan was to move
#debian-devel-fr from Freenode to OFTC, but not everybody followed so we
ended up with the channel on both networks. I asked them why they didn't
follow and they told me that they want to be on irc.debian.org because
it's a Debian related channel. Roland Mas, Sébastien Bacher and several
other people argumented in that way.

Start a poll if you want to convince me otherwise. I'm on both network and
I'll stay on both networks after the change as well... but I definitely
want all official Debian channels on a single network.

Right now I'm on those Debian related channels on OFTC:

And on Freenode:

The facts are that most recent Debian-related channels have been created
on OFTC.
