This is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED release. You SHOULD upgrade to it ASAP as it contains security fixes.
If you use a version prior to 1.1.18 and you do NOT use m_namesx, you should update to 1.1.18 on the fly, then load m_namesx to avoid using code vulnerable to a crash.
If you use either uhnames or namesx, you should reload both of those modules after upgrading.
I wrote an email to Craig Edwards to see whether he has a new proxy maintainer or no interest anymore.
I don't know who to ask about proxy maintaining of this - to be honest, maintaining packages is not my area of expertise.
I can get a 1.1.18 ebuild done for this and will submit it as a patch to this bug for whoever has access to apply.

1.1.18 ebuild by satmd
should work fine for 1.1.18 release, fixes crashbug in NAMES when certain configurations are enabled.
anything happening with this?
Sorry Craig, the fact that this does not have a dedicated maintainer is keeping things at a slow pace. I'll look into committing this tomorrow, hopefully.
Thanks Robert :-)
The ebuilds are from my local repo at http://lain.at/dev/portage_overlay/net-irc/inspircd/ - where I have submitted an updated ebuild just yesterday (adding ldap to IUSE).

I'll be bumping this to 1.1.19 after discussion in bug 218880 is done.
1.1.19 is in the tree. Craig, satmd, it would be great if I could get some feedback from you guys whether the ebuild is working ok. Then I'll add arches for a fast stabling.
works fine for me :-)
Craig, thanks for testing.
Arches, please test and mark stable:
