Escargot and AIM?

Since the gitlab says

This is a server planning to support as many messaging platforms and technologies as possible. Support is planned for every messaging platform/technology that is either defunct or suitable for federation.

I was wondering if Escargot would support AIM in the future, and I would also like some info about YMSG support.

there’s this technical post made by some guy, it shows how supporting AIM may be a bit difficult.

Yes it will. In fact it’s one of the next frontends valtron wants to support. However we aren’t sure how doable it’ll be with Escargot’s infrastructure yet.

msn and yahoo and irc for now i guess

how does escargot support irc?

IRC is its own thing right now. It’ll probably stay that way for a while.
