0003288: IRC: Allow changing ident
Doomseeker includes a small IRC client. Its connect dialog displays fields to edit your nick, alternate nick and realname but not ident. The ident seems to be hardcoded to be the same as your configured nick.

On Debian GNU/Linux, it is also worth noting this ident is not the same as the Unix account on the local system by default/if empty or undefined.

  1. If IRC is not already visible, to view it press Ctrl + I or access it via top crates (View → IRC) or the button (IRC).

  2. On the left side of IRC panel, click the "Connect" button.

  3. Notice how there's fields to edit your nick, alternate nick and realname but not ident.

No tags attached.

If I'm not mistaken, what you want is the <user> parameter of the /user command as defined by RFC 2812: [^]

Okay, among other things, I've added the "User name" edit box to the IRC connection dialog: [^]

It can now be considered if we want to allow to keep different identities - identity per network or multiple identities stored separately, with preferable identity somehow associated with each network. However, I don't think that complicating the IRC client should be the focus in Doomseeker.

While the <user> part of USER message is currently derived from the nickname and not the local user account name on UNIX-like operating systems (which may not be the most ideal default) when NULL, the suggested feature previously missing and mentioned in this ticket has been resolved.
