Improve the general quality and functionality of twisted.words.protocols.irc

Reported by: Jonathan Jacobs Owned by: Jonathan Jacobs

Component: words Keywords:
Cc: Branch:


twisted.words.protocols.irc appears to be pretty old and not very well maintained:

  • The coding style does not follow the Twisted standard, for the most part.
  • There are many missing docstrings.
  • There is a fairly large amount of code duplication.
  • Test coverage is patchy.
  • Existing tests are of relatively poor quality.
  • Server and client functionality is on a pretty basic level.

This kind of general ticket with no specific goals should be avoided. Please file some new tickets with specific, well-defined goals. For example, if is not covered by the unit tests, file a ticket for adding test coverage for it. Please don't file a ticket about coding standard compliance, though. Code should be updated to follow the standard as part of maintenance going on for a more compelling reason.
