Description Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-26 16:08:20 EST
Since epic obsoletes ircii, it should provide /usr/bin/irc for people who just upgrade 
the distribution without paying too much attention. 
Former ircii users will expect 
irc nic server 
to work out of the box.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-26 16:14:58 EST
But doing that means that people can't install ircii without removing epic
first, which isn't ideal either.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-03-26 16:16:32 EST
I don't think anyone will want to do that, since they're pretty much the same thing (with 
epic having some extra features). 
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-03-26 16:30:17 EST
Except that people are stubborn and resistent to change.  Why force the issue?

(does remind me to put something in the release notes, though)
