getchanidle for $botnick is not reset on PRIVMSG in puthelp/serv/quick #816
Feature request. (currently for 1.8.4)
Queue manager could parse text we send to server and reset bot's idle if valid PRIVMSG is detected as well. (and other omitted protocol commands which do not cause any feedback message, but might be observed on channel by others)
IMHO it does not really matter for a bot if server received and propagated further into the network those messages. (or it does…?)
However this is not exactly correct as getchanidle is not really an idle, but observed last activity. For example pushmode does not reset IRC idle, but is considered as a reset by a bot (for any nick). This should have to be clarified in docs at least (or command renamed?).
(not sure about backward compatibility for scripts; this behaviour was observed for 1.6.21 as well)
