Description (last modified by admin)


I wrote a patch against bitlbee 1.0 which extends bitlbee by a signal handler for SIGUSR1. When bitlbee (with this patch :)) receives this signal, it reconnects all active connections on all connected clients. This is useful for, e.g., placing a "killall -USR1 bitlbee" in /etc/ppp/ip-up or similiar, as bitlbee's oscar module only notices connection loss after some time.

See #38, I want to combine this one with that enhancement instead of using Unix signals.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Revision 1069 attempts to minimize the amount of stuff done in signal handlers to avoid deadlocks. For that exact reason, what this patch does is completely unacceptable.

Also, well, see previous comment - we have /rehash now.
