#26330 new defect

We could use an IRC bot to interact with our "/me status:" messages

In the network team, we've started using IRC messages of the form /me status: opening a bunch of tickets to keep trac of what we're doing day to day. It would be cool to have something to keep track of them for us.

It would be best if this were done on an opt-in basis: nobody should have their IRC logged without their consent.

It might be nice to have some feature to remind you to do this if you haven't done so on a regular day, but that could easily become obnoxious.

The browser team is also thinking about using /me status:, so in the long run a bot might be useful for many Tor people. Side note: a browser person is supposed to check with the Network Team before we start using this convention; we do not want to disrupt the Network Team's workflow.

It's fine with me if you use it too.

Where should the bot log these messages? Should it be something like the meetbot logging to a web page? Or do you have a service in mind?

I think we were thinking of a webpage.

It also might be a good idea to be able to restrict this if we need to, so it can handle trolls saying "/me status: in ur base killin ur doodz" over and over.

I will note that this ticket is in a component that is easy to lose track of, and isn't owned by anybody or any group. So if somebody wants it to be on anybody's plate, they should pick a component where it is. :)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
