Bug#760371: ircd-irc2: Discrepancy between documentation and configuration

Joey Schulze
Package: ircd-irc2
Version: 2.11.2p3~dfsg-2
Severity: normal

Hi,

apparently this irc daemon requires the configuration to use the
percent sign (%) as delimiter instead of the colon (:) as denoted in
its documentation and partially written in its own configuration file.

For example, the configuration lists the following setting as valid:

   P::::6667::

However, this results in "No valid P line available" (or phrased
similar).

The default configuration of this package contains the proper line:

   P%%%%6667%


Different to the A line where the configuration uses the colon as
delimiter, but the software requires a percent sign.

When I say configuration I refer to the file referenced on top of the
configuration:


-------------
# This is ircd's config-file. Look at
# /usr/share/doc/ircd-irc2/ircd.conf.example.gz and
# and /usr/share/doc/ircd-irc2/INSTALL.* for more detailled information
# and instructions
-------------


Regards

        Joey

On upgrade there is a sed that should have converted it from : to
%, but the conversion in the postinst is currently not correct,
it's been fixed in svn already.

Since the upgrade didn't work for you, I assume that's really why
you  have this problem.
