User-agent: Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 (Windows/20041206)
I've finished an initial implementation of an ECF-based IRC provider,
which allows chat via an IRC server. It's kind of cool because it uses
all the same UI code (ChatRoomView) that is used for XMPP chat.
The plugin has a library with some not-yet-approved-by-EF Apache 2 code
implementing the IRC protocol, so for the time being this plugin is
stored with other such plugins on the CVS server at ecf1.osuosl.org.
That CVS server will soon have pserver anonymous CVS access, but
currently has extssh access only for those of you with accounts (Pete,
Paul, Dmitry). As soon as the pserver anonymous CVS access is
available for ecf1 I'll let everyone know on this list.
For those of you on the committer team please LMK if you want an ssh
account on that machine...and we can get you one. They want to use ssh2
with client auth, though, so in addition to username they'll need to get
an X.509 certificate from you. In any event, just drop me a note to
slewis@xxxxxxxxxxxxx if you want full read/write access to stuff on
ecf1.osuosl.org and we'll get you going.
