Summary0006054: set::allowed-channelchars
DescriptionWhen adding set::allowed-channelchars in UnrealIRCd 5 I thought it was too effort at the time to make it more complex so made it only have the options: utf8, ascii, any.
But we can revisit the idea with UnrealIRCd 6 and make the set::allowed-nickchars functionality available in set::allowed-channelchars. Then you can have: set { allowed-channelchars latin-utf8; }
See for more information.

This does not deal with CASEMAPPING. Safest option for the paranoid would still be a set::allowed-channelchars setting of "ascii". But maybe it is a good middle ground for some networks? Not sure if people would actually use it, it needs to be worth the effort.

To me this seems to bring back the idea of a spamfilter or other option to allow/block channel names by regex which would give additional flexibility and additionally allow the ability to block specific characters of an admins choice.
