ircservices Debian packaging

Writing about web page http://www.ircservices.za.net/

CompSoc uses IRC Services, but it’s not in Debian. I’m under the impression that migrating away from IRC Services to a different services implementation is slightly more work than just packaging IRC Services. It’s easy-peasy to change the IRC server we use, but migrating NickServ passwords just doesn’t sound like fun.

So, I filed an ITP – the best bit so far has been discovering that the md5 code was under a restrictive licence, and sending upstream a patch to use a different version. The author has now reworked it, so I’ve got to go off and test his. After that, I can put a package together, and use CompSoc as alpha-testers.
