#278 closed defect (wontfix)

doesnt convert nicks savefile properly from 1.0.3 to 1.1dev

I just updated to v1.1dev. Bitlbee automatically converted my nicklist to the new xml file but it put all the renames to the first msn account in my savefile (i have 2 of them) I believe that the same problem exists in every multiple accounts nicklists.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This is a little bit annoying, but fixing it is next to impossible without some ugly hacks. The new format stores the nicks per-account while the old format stores them per-protocol. At load time there is no sane way to easily figure out which account a nick belongs to.

I hope people who have multiple accounts on the same network can accept this annoyance. Once the upgrade is done, the real problem (not being able to assign unique nicks to buddies who are on two contact lists) will be solved.
