Description Lucas Forschler 2017-01-20 15:34:55 PST
While moving the WKR / WebKitBot to an Amazon AWS instance, it will not connect.
evidently, irc.freenode.org rejects AWS clients, requiring them to use SASL.

apparently, irclib.py does support SASL in new versions, but the one in our repo is ancient.

It looks like this is the location of the library we are currently using

This does not appear to have SASL support:

We should investigate an alternate library which has SASL support.

For the meantime, I've brought webkitbot back online using it's previous host, which does not require SASL.

Webkitbot is now on Slack.
