  • Status changed from Confirmed to New
  • Starter set to No

It's not clear to me anymore that we should do that: we've seemingly decided not to ship a preset for another IRC network, due to the UI mess resulting from accounts to hidden services in Pidgin. Reverting to "New" status.

We now ship a Pidgin with SASL support, so this would be technically possible, modulo the UI mess.

#7 Updated by intrigeri about 5 years ago

  • Status changed from Confirmed to New

We still have no way to deal with the UI mess that would result from this, hence back to New state.

Now that this ticket is properly linked to #6232, it makes sense to mark it as confirmed, as we do want to see this happen, ideally.
