#2020 reopened Defect

freenode-seven: "/whois notanick" doesnt indicate that the user doesnt exist, instead keeps spinning

Reported by: akempgen Owned by: timothy
Component: Chat Core (IRC) Version: 2.3 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords:


"/whois notanick" results in "402 nosuchserver" instead of 401 + 318 on freenode-seven,

someone should also talk to freenode staff about this

  • Component changed from Colloquy (Mac) to Chat Core (IRC)

actually, freenode-sevens behavior is correct, our "WHOIS nick nick" syntax is the reason, we should try using "WHOIS * nick" instead

but that might break compatibility with networks that only accept one parameter for whois (against irc rfc), which networks are that?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

fixed in r4760. networks that dont support 2 parameters after whois should be made aware of the spec and/or receive a workaround, but our default behavior is now according to the rfcs.
