#84 assigned enhancement

expose away/idle functionality through perl interface (and make consistent across protocols)

Reported by: nygren@MIT.EDU Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: internals Keywords:


Different protocols currently have different behaviors for setting an away message and status. (For example, IRC doesn't appear to have any and the AIM/zephyr functionality is different from the Jabber functionality.)

Things we may want to do:

  • Expose the away functionality through the perl interfaces. Allow protocols to have a hook that gets invoked when the away status is changed.
  • Provide a perl interface for querying a general away status. (Currently the zephyr/aim away status are available separately.)
  • Generalize the "reply with an away message" functionality to work across all protocols.
  • Make the Jabber and IRC away functionality (at least for explicit away setting) be consistent with the AIM/Zephyr functionality.
  • Perhaps add an option to change the IRC nick when in an away state (such as by adding a suffix).
