We have loaded a new module on the network which provides the $j extban type:
$j:<chan> – matches users who are or are not banned from a specified channel
As an example…
/mode #here +b $j:#timbuktu
…would ban users from #here that are banned (+b) in #timbuktu.
Please note that there are a couple of gotchas:
- Only matching +b list entries are checked. Quiets (+q) Exemptions (+e) & invexes (+I) are NOT then considered. As such, the following mode change would not alter the behaviour of the first example:
/mode #timbuktu +e *!*@*
- Quiets and the quieting effect of bans may not immediately take effect on #here when #timbuktu’s ban list changes due to caching by the ircd.
- $j isn’t recursive. Any $j extbans set in #timbuktu are ignored when matching in #here.
We imagine you’ll have some more useful use cases than the above.
Thanks for flying freenode!
