ICQ Transport deleting Contactlist

I received 2 reports that the ICQ Transport will kill your contactlist when you try to rename a group.

I first thought it may have been something different, but then my cousin also reported it.

Can anybody confirm this?

It is, unfortunately, quite possible. I moved ICQ to experimental because of the numerous issues with it that has not been resolved yet. I vaguely recall someone else reporting the same thing, but there’‘s definitely a lot of contact list issues with ICQ. (oddly enough though, I haven’'t really run into them myself)

is there any online document that we keep these reported bugs about the im gateways?

Generally if there are problems and I get enough information to investigate it, I will create an issue in the issue tracker. Likewise, there’‘s the ability to search the forum. I also put a little note in the changelog about known issues, though it’‘s generally vague. (I believe there’'s one in there right now about numerous ICQ issues)

Apparently the ICQ Transport has killed again some contactlist members while being used on JWChat…

Yeah there’'s a known issue with that. Issue is: GATE-188

You aren’‘t the first person to mention it with JWChat, so I think it’‘s a good target for me to use to test this behavior. =) I’'ll add that to the call.
