System is down and some new stuff about E2

I’ll be offline for few couple days because i’m trying to clean out my PC a bit and wanna reinstall my operating system once again. After i’ll manage to bring back my new Gentoo + Gnome 2.16/Enlightenment E17 CVS + scribes + gedit i’ll get back to work on Evangeline II once again (like 6th time?). There is a lot of things to do, but current, 0.0.6 version seems to work preety good for past few months. I’ve found out that remote authentication will be a lot better, easier and a bit more secure than local key verify method so i’ve fixed E2 Tcl scripts to authorize on startup and wrote a little plugin to Arjuna project which works as eauthd server ;)

I have also changed few things about E2 and thought it would be nice to share my ideas with those who actually
check that website from time to time (if there are such fans ;)).

New ideas for E2 are:

  • A couple of new channels settings like:
  • protect-reops, which you can turn it on/off and decide what type of user can add/remove REOP on channel.

  • procect-users (instead of +protectops and +protectfriend chansets), which you can turn on/   off, decide what users will be protected and how offender will be punished (deop, kick, ban?)

  • revenge, which once again you can turn on/off and decide what users should be protected and how to punish   offenders. I’m not sure about this settings, but it may and probably will be integrated with protect-users.

  • oplimits, which allows you to set limits for opping for certaint user classess.

  • defence, with possibility to turn on/off, choose action (kick or deop) and define how much kicks or deops in one   line bot should handle. This one should be usefull for non-IRCnet networks.

  • elimit, a new, improved elimits setttings.

  • New/improved stuff:
  • mychaos – written from sratch replacement for old chaos (kick and opping system?) from E1. Current version is much cleaner and more flexible.

  • gotmode – new, optimized replacement for gotmode funciton. Much more efficient, flexible and easier to manage than the original.

I hope that this few work will let you understand what E2 might have and what kind of work i have to do. Once again  i would like to remember that any donations are welcomed and helps me to believe that there still is somebody who wait for some e2 working alpha version ;)
