invite-notify client capability allows a client to specify that it
would like to be notified when users are invited to channels.
This client capability MUST be named
This capability is designed to replace the traditional “X has invited Y to #chan” server notices, and to provide a standard way that allows clients to learn when another client does an /INVITE.
The format of the INVITE message is as follows:
:<inviter> INVITE <target> <channel>
The message source,
inviter is the user doing the INVITE, target
is the user being invited,
channel is the channel where
:ChanServ!ChanServ@example.com INVITE Attila #channel
This message translates to ChanServ has invited Attila to #channel.
The server is not required to send the INVITE message described in this document to all clients supporting this capability on a channel. For example, a server may choose to only send the message to clients having channel op, or only to clients that have the privilege to do an /INVITE on the channel themselves.
