Summary : IRC to other chat networks gateway
Description :
Bitlbee is an IRC to other chat networks gateway. Bitlbee can be used as

networks like XMPP/Jabber (including Google Talk and Hipchat), MSN/Skype,
AIM and ICQ, the Twitter microblogging network (and all other Twitter API
compatible services like status.net).

Update Information:

BitlBee 3.5.1 (30 Jan 2017) =========================== - purple: Fix crash on
file transfer requests from unknown contacts. This was the result of an
incomplete fix in the previous release and may result in remote DoS. Read the
full security advisory at: https://bugs.bitlbee.org/ticket/1282 - After some
investigation we decided to reclassify a crash fix from the previous release as
a security issue. Read the full security advisory at:
https://bugs.bitlbee.org/ticket/1281 - Included help.txt in the release tarball,
which was missing in the previous release and resulted in adding python as a
build dependency. The release tarball of 3.5.1 does not require python.

This update can be installed with the "dnf" update program. Use
su -c 'dnf upgrade bitlbee' at the command line.
For more information, refer to the dnf documentation available at
