To implement OTR function on IRC client, to make chatting private.

pure-python-otr (potr) has lack of maintenance for a long time and been considered as "potentially insecure". So I will call libotr5 directly with C.

This project have two parts need to research on. The IRC client API and libotr calling method. It probably will not be finished in just one hackweek, I'll keep working on it.

      Hi, which IRC client are you intending to write a plugin? Pidgin has one (your first link). There's an existing one for irssi (it's in the OpenSUSE repos; it's also unclear why it generates two RPMs).

        weechat is the first one I want to work on

        There's an existing weechat-otr depend on python-pure-otr but not working and unsafe now. And there's a very old weechat-otr (about 5 years ago) in the community, but it is out of day can not work. So I have to start from scratch.
