On, https://wiki.gnome.org/Sysadmin/IRC the docs says:

"Servers are using a certificate having one DN (currently being the FQDN of the
host) so connecting to either the irc.gnome.org or irc.gimp.org DNS entries
with SSL verification turned on will result in an error as the DN won't match.
That is expected, in case you are willing to verify the SSL certificate (on
XChat make sure the 'Accept invalid certificate' flag is not set, on irssi make
sure '-ssl -ssl_verify' is appended to your connect command) make sure to
connect to a single server on the list above with the proper flags set."

This seems to be wrong, I can see Altnames being set in the certificate.

Shouldn't this be corrected?
