Summary0005079: Change output of RPL_SNOMASK to have the snomask in a parameter
DescriptionRight now, the 008 RPL_SNOMASK numeric is sent as this:

:test.local 008 emerson :Server notice mask (+k)

Unreal is the only large IRCd that puts the mask in the trailing parameter, all the other IRCds that have snomasks put it as a separate parameter, like so:

:test.local 008 emerson +FZbcdfklrsuxy :Server notice mask

Having the mask in a separate parameter makes it easier for client developers to unambiguously parse the numeric, since it has a separate, dedicated parameter. It will also bring the numeric in line with the rest of the IRCds, so that client developers no longer have to special case this output.

Good idea. Thanks for the report!

    Change numeric 008 format which reports snomask.
    This is for easier parsing of the "MODE yournick" response.
    From: 008 testuser :Server notice mask (+kcfjvGqSso)
    To: 008 testuser +kcfjvGqSso :Server notice mask
