|0003392||Doomseeker||[All Projects] Suggestion||public||2018-03-03 18:01||2018-03-04 07:14|
|Platform||x86_64||OS||Debian GNU/Linux||OS Version||buster/sid|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003392: IRC: Define username from local UNIX user account name when undefined|
|Description||My username (login name) on this machine I'm using is "wub":|
$ id -n -u wub
When I'm using the small IRC client that comes with Doomseeker and the "User name" field (user-definable since Doomseeker 1.2, undefined in 1.1) is empty and my nick is set to "WubTheCaptain", by default Doomseeker derives and defines the "User name" to be part of nick:
[*] WubTheCaptain (~WubTheCap@dsl-olubng12-54fa11-211.dhcp.inet.fi) H 0 (Linda Lapinlampi) [WubTheCaptain] End of /WHO list.
I suggest tweaking this to check for getlogin() on UNIX-like operating systems, or if that fails, the old behavior.
In this case, the expected (and suggested) outcome would've been:
[*] WubTheCaptain (~firstname.lastname@example.org) H 0 (Linda Lapinlampi) [WubTheCaptain] End of /WHO list.
|Steps To Reproduce|
|Additional Information||id (GNU coreutils) 8.28|
|I hate when programs do that, it's like an accidental leak of information that I might did not want to divulge. That's why I default user to nick and that's why I oppose changing this.|
|It's related to the IRC RFCs, specifically the now-dead SUMMON command which summoned the user on the local UNIX box to IRC based on the username. It is kind of assumed from IRC and I support this suggestion personally.|
|If there's no desire to change this feature's behavior currently then feel free to close the bug as "won't fix", Zalewa.|
While I personally always use my online nickname as my system user name I know a lot of people don't do this. There have been a few times where I've had users real names divulged to me accidentally since they weren't aware that some programs would blindly send that information.
I think it's safe to say that the current behavior best suits the desires of the Doom community at large.
This issue is already marked as resolved.
If you feel that is not the case, please reopen it and explain why.
