Description Josh Boyer 2005-11-30 10:17:04 EST
Description of problem:

There is no option in xchat-gnome to accept self-signed ssl certificates.  This
is needed when attempting to use SSL to connect to a private IRC network, etc. 
X-Chat proper has this as an option ("Accept invalid SSL certificate").

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Comment 1 Guillaume Desmottes 2005-12-28 15:21:19 EST
I wrote a patch in upstream to implement this feature.
If it's possible could you test it please ? (or provide a server with invalid
SSL certificate).

See: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322848
Comment 2 Brian Pepple 2005-12-29 20:20:20 EST
Guillaume's patch has been applied upstream.

Once I get some free time, I'll finish working on 0.8 for Rawhide (currently
failing to build, I'm assuming due to modular X), and I'll include this patch.
Comment 3 Brian Pepple 2005-12-30 13:10:42 EST
New package should be available once it's been signed.
