Description Senko Rasic 2010-10-18 06:47:29 UTC
It would be useful if a handler could match channels based on their accounts. Eg. irc-optimized client could say 'I want to handle all text channels on accounts that use protocol "irc".'

A way to do this could be filters matching Account object path and/or properties. To make this more useful, a read-only Protocol property could be added to Account - although it's encoded in the Account object path, having a separate property is useful for matching.

Reassigning to Vivek for reviewing and setting severity to enhancement.
Comment 2 Simon McVittie 2010-10-18 07:16:46 UTC
The semantics in terms of "and" and "or" need to be clearer. I assume the semantics are meant to be:

handle every channel where
            the account matches AccountFilter[0]
            the account matches AccountFilter[1]
            the channel matches HandlerChannelFilter[0]
            the channel matches HandlerChannelFilter[1]

I'm not sure that this should be on Handler: how about a new Client.I.AccountFiltering that could apply to any class of Client?
