#wikimedia-labs irc channel renamed to #wikimedia-cloud
The great renaming has begun!

The first very visible step in the plan to rename things away from the term 'labs' happened around 2017-06-05 15:00Z when IRC admins made the #wikimedia-labs irc channel on Freenode invite-only and setup an automatic redirect to the new #wikimedia-cloud channel.

If you were running a bot in the old channel or using an IRC bouncer like ZNC with "sticky" channel subscriptions you may need to make some manual adjustments to your configuration.
