Description Xavier Claessens 2011-10-01 11:43:40 UTC
Gabble always adds X-TELEPATHY-PASSWORD auth mechanism but not all services supports that. For example messenger.live.com can only auth via an access-token.

Wocky branch to add needed API:

Gabble branch to fix the bug:
Comment 1 Will Thompson 2011-10-03 02:46:15 UTC
I don't like the name of the method: it's singular, but the argument is plural.

How about wocky_auth_registry_supports_one_of()? (Which I don't like much either.)

And can we have a gtk-doc comment?

And the method implementation is wrong. I can see other password-based authentication mechanisms that Wocky supports; SCRAM-SHA-1, for starters. I think you probably want to be using some of the logic from wocky_auth_registry_select_handler() and/or wocky_auth_registry_start_auth_async_func().

Can you describe in the Gabble commit message why this is needed?
