*shudder* Need I say more? That document is so non-useful it's scary. :) It's like DCC Chat/File on top of HTTP (like), on top of TCP, started from DCC, from IRC, on TCP. could you /have/ any more levels of protocol?

I do wonder why this would be useful for chatzilla. I suppose you could make a plugin to do it, but it's really something that should be completely independent. I don't even see what it has to do with irc. Seriously considering wontfix.
(In reply to comment #4) > Seriously considering wontfix. To be honest, I quite agree. Additionally, to me the spec leaves lots and lots of holes as to how this is supposed to work (and apparently I'm not the only one), and I really don't fancy using Ethereal or similar to reverse-engineer the protocol.

Make that 3 for wontfix - this is so specialized that to implement this would be code bloat for 99% or more of chatzilla's users, not to mention a waste of developer time for a feature that almost noone will use.
WONTFIX. We won't be adding DCC Server support directly into the client; a script to provide the functionality should be possible - if it isn't, I'm OK for us to fix bugs that prevent it working.
