Current Common Lisp IRC situation

Because of the upheaval at Freenode, I've migrated to Libera Chat along with a bunch of other Lisp programmers. We have used that as a chance to make some small changes to the channel structure:
#commonlispis the on-topic Common Lisp channel (formerly
#lispis the somewhat on-topic discussion about all Lisp dialects (formerly
- the rest of the channel names should work the same.
The first two lines of the above were mentioned because
#lisp on Freenode used to have a non-trivial volume of people asking questions about Scheme or Emacs Lisp due to the too-generic channel name. Naming the Common Lisp channel
#commonlisp resolves this issue, at the cost of sacrificing a lucrative and attractive five-character channel name.
