services, and server-local channels with prefix "&". And as usual, lots

This seems to be an other bug of IRCServices that I forgot to mention
and had on all my boxes, as well:
IRCServices don't flush the write buffer when the connection to the
server is established and therefore never sends the USER and NICK
commands to log in. Which in turn causes the server to disconnect
IRCServices again because of no commands were received.
Send IRCServices a HUP signal right after starting it up (kill -HUP
I fixed the bug in IRCServices, see my post to the IRCServices mailing
So you can a) apply this patch or b) wait for an IRCServices release
with this patch.
Currently I am running the latest development code from the git
repository. What is the status of services support in the code? Are
there any irc services that will work with ngircd yet?
P.S. - I realize the "when it's done" think. Just need to know what
kind of progress you are making.

Attached is the announcement of IRCServices 5.1.13, which fixes the
bug that prevented ngIRCd as of the GIT master development version to
use this IRC services package without patching.
