Please use the newer version of the patch which fixes a stupid bug.

Appreciate the patch. Unfortunately we are already in feature-freeze for next release, of which I hope to bring out an RC1 or pre1 this weekend, so... it will be for next one (.10). These are not the things I want to rush in right before a (pre)release :p.

(unsigned long)acptr->user->svid,
that.. doesn't look very correct? ;)

Hmm, I will review the patch. It is possible that I missed a cast, but since I am on 64-bit it should have shown a compiler warning...

In the meantime, I am working on cleaning up a patch that is dependent on this one. :)

unreal-svid-core.patch cleans up the casting that I missed.

unreal-svid-whois.patch adds support for RPL_WHOISLOGGEDIN (330).

What I mean is you are trying to represent a pointer value as a number. I'm sure that's not what you intend.

Also, did you test this patch with services like anope and ircservices? Because now they will see users with service timestamps of * instead of 0, when they are not set (yet).

bleh, comments crossed ;p

HINT TO SELF: stop accidentally deleting stuff.

Ok, the 1st issue was fixed indeed ;)

anope and ircservices will be fine with * instead of 0, because they call atoi() on the svid anyway :)

c-interactive> printf("%d\n", atoi("*"))

unreal-svid-extban.patch adds support for banning by accountname.

example: +b ~a:moocow would match anyone logged in as moocow.

I have these patches running on a production network of about 175 users on and not a single problem so far. I've also tested them on a testnet running and Atheme 6.1 devel with no problems.

- Services coders: Added support for ESVID. Instead of a number you can
  now store a string (of max NICKLEN size) as service stamp. See
  protoctl.txt and serverprotocol.html in doc/technical for more information.
  Patch from nenotopia (0003966).
- Show account name in /WHOIS, for ESVID-capable services packages, patch
  from nenotopia (0003966).
- Added extended ban ~a:<account name> which matches users who are logged
  in to services with that account name. This works only on services that
  support ESVID. Patch from nenotopia (0003966).
- Updated extended ban documentation in help.conf and unreal32docs:
  new bantype ~a, and some text about extended bans & invex (+I).

EDIT: and ;)

Thanks for the patches! :)

I was informed by an anope dev that it did break some of their versions. I've therefore just committed a change that makes the servicestamp default to '0' again (instead of '*'), just like it always was.
